The effect of corner radius on the mechanical behavior of additively manufactured honeycomb structures

The objective of this research is to evaluate the effect of corner radius in the compressive behavior of additively manufactured honeycombs. Three different approaches will be employed for this study: computational, experimental and analytical. Finite Element Analysis will enable a study of the relationship between radius and deformation. Honeycombs will be printed using the Selective Laser Sintering process; they will be tested and the results will be compared to the Finite Element results. An analytical solution will be developed to relate the corner radius on Mechanical properties and provide insight into how it may be used as a design parameter.
