Abstract:

Rational methods are developed of structural optimization for flat, corrugated core and web core sandwich panels subjected to uniaxial compressive loads. These methods provide a means by which such panels can be designed with minimum weight for a given load index, panel width, panel length, and face and core materials. Methods presented permit a rational material selection by comparing the weights of the optimum construction for several material systems as a function of load index. The methods account for both isotropic or orthotropic face and core materials and various boundary conditions.
