Open Access research that is helping to improve educational outcomes for children

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the School of Education, including those researching educational and social practices in curricular subjects. Research in this area seeks to understand the complex influences that increase curricula capacity and engagement by studying how curriculum practices relate to cultural, intellectual and social practices in and out of schools and nurseries.

Research at the School of Education also spans a number of other areas, including inclusive pedagogy, philosophy of education, health and wellbeing within health-related aspects of education (e.g. physical education and sport pedagogy, autism and technology, counselling education, and pedagogies for mental and emotional health), languages education, and other areas.

The bending performance is the main performance index of the sandwich structure. This paper is used to analyse and test showing that: the range of the elastic limit and the maximum bearing capacity is 25~30. kN and 34.9~54.8. kN, respectively; the average of bending stiffness and shear stiffness measured by test is 810. kN. m and 1717. kN/m, respectively; In elastic stage (U2 = 6 mm), plate material in the weld junction of web (n = 5)and face plates appear local yield, which shows that the most unfavorable area of sandwich panels is the weld junction of web and face plates.
