In this study, novel sandwich structures containing combined geometry structures as core materials were designed and developed for blast protection applications. The proposed combined geometries consist of a hemispherical geometry attached seamlessly to a cylindrical segment. Deep drawing method was used to obtain four different types of combined geometries having two different radii from blanks with two different initial thicknesses. The mechanical properties of the blank material were obtained by conducting tensile experiments at quasi-static and high strain rate regimes. Thereafter, crushing and energy absorption behavior of core units were determined by tests at quasi-static and low velocity regimes, experimentally. Before crushing simulations, manufacturing method was simulated to have realistic residual stress/strain and thickness variations of numerical specimens. Having accurate deformation history, crushing experiments were simulated and a good agreement was reached proving the realistic modeling of the manufacturing effects. The effect of heat treatment on the crushing behavior of combined geometry shells was also investigated both experimentally and numerically and there was a good agreement noted. After, cross-shaped sandwich structures of one type of combined geometry were prepared. Static, low velocity and high velocity crushing behavior of sandwiches were investigated. Study on sandwich structures also included confined experiments in order to account for the interaction between the core units and between the core units and surrounding environment; such a case might be a bigger sandwich in which adjacent cores could exert forces to each other. Numerical study was validated by comparing experimental and numerical results of three different loading regimes for sandwiches. Having well-verified numerical models, numerical study was extended to investigate strain rate and inertial effects on sandwich structures by simulations at high crushing velocities. With complete knowledge on crushing and energy absorption of single geometries and sandwiches, behavior of sandwiches under blast was investigated by using ConWep function. Various types were proposed for arrangements of sandwiches to have higher energy absorption and lower transmitted forces to the protected structures.
