Abstract

Analytic formulas for averaged elastic and strength characteristics of folded structure’s determination are identified. They are based on the introduction of a hypothesis about momentless action of its elements (web covers) in a charge operation and on phased deletion from action ex-post buckling. Dimensionless coefficients contained in the structural formulas, which appear on the solution process of formulated problems, are to be determined from experimental evidence on tension, compression and pure shear in two-planes. In a tensioncompression process the folded structures should be considered heterogeneous material with averaged plasto-elastic behaviors, which has relations between averaged voltages and averaged appropriate deformations and has a deformations stepwise change area (conditional plastic flow). Keywords: folded structures, cell of cyclicity, averaged elastic and strength characteristics, modulus of elasticity, deformation curve, structural formulas, theoretical and experimental method. 1 Introduction In many cases, the use of composite materials is the most efficient in constructions (three-layer or multilayer) with cores, which have good mechanical strength, rigidity, vibration, sound and heat insulation characteristics. These characteristics of cores of some structures have been well studied today. A large number of publications, a detailed analysis of which is contained, in particular, in a review article [1] are devoted to their research. Most often in three-layer and multilayer structures, the cores have a honeycomb ([2, 10] etc.) structure. In the calculations of such structures the real cores are usually replaced by some homogeneous continuum, which averaged
