Presented paper focuses on intermediate outcomes of the bilateral project between the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, STU in Bratislava, Slovakia and the Institute of Automotive and Transport Engineering, UBFC in Nevers, France. Thus, mechanical properties and behaviour of glass fibre reinforced polymer composite foam cored sandwich panels joints were researched to estimate the best possible joint technology. Three-point bending and four-point bending were used to evaluate flexure strength and static force-flexure curve. Based on such testing, one specific joint composition was chosen to be broadly investigated. Finally, chosen type of joint panels was tested under four-point cyclic loading to obtain its fatigue properties.
Key words: bending / fatigue / sandwich
