Aluminium Composite Panel is a structure made of three layers: low-density core inserted in between two relatively thin skin layers. This sandwich setup allows achieving excellent mechanical performance at minimal weight. The very high rigidity of an ACP panel is achieved thanks to the interaction of its components under the flexural load applied to the panels: core takes the shear loads and creates a distance between the skins which take the in-plane stresses, one skin in tension, the other in compression.
