J. Energy Resour. Technol 140(12), 122904 (Aug 30, 2018) (8 pages) Paper No: JERT-18-1058; doi: 10.1115/1.4041091 History: Received January 21, 2018; Revised July 23, 2018

Recently, engineers and researchers reconsider honeycomb sandwich structures due to their vast application in industries and aviation arenas. In this study, a new honeycomb sandwich material was developed and tested. The purpose of the present work is to investigate numerically and experimentally with a comparative study on the effects of heat transfer on design parameters and geometry for different types of exotic honeycomb structures taking in account radiation within the cell and conduction in the cell walls. The numerical solution for temperature profiles for different types of exotic honeycomb structures and solid disk are performed in order to inspect the variation of heat transfer. The modeling results show a good agreement with the experimental results. The present work demonstrates that the temperature profile for reentrant is the highest one compared to splined and stiffened which reaches around 10% at temperature of the front surface Tin = 100 °C. It was found that the rib length enhances significantly heat transfer. Results showed also that stiffened honeycomb has a good insulation and metallic honeycomb core structure has a good thermal insulation characteristic for the highest instantaneous temperature, whereas reentrant honeycomb has a good heat transmission.
