Research summary

Vehicle structures such as trains and trams should be as light as possible, whereby the use of sandwich panels is worth considering. This project proposes to investigate manufacturing technologies for making sandwich panels that will meet the industry quality requirements, including operational loading, acoustic and thermal performance, energy absorption under accidental collision, and deformation under ballistic impact.

Expected completion date

July 2021
