Abstract:

A theoretical analysis is presented of the behavior of sandwich panels having dissimilar facings of unequal thickness when loaded in edgewise shear. Design curves are presented for simply supported panels with dissimilar facings. Approximate formulas are included for clamped panels. The analysis is compared with results of tests on 28 square panels of symmetrical isotropic sandwich constructions. Included are descriptions of testing techniques employed to induce pure shear in the test panels. A method is given for predicting the behavior at stresses exceeding proportional-limit values.
