Abstract:

A computer program which implements the stability analysis of flat, simply supported sandwich composite panels is presented. The program is operable either in an interactive or batch mode, and provides for multiple problem runs and selective editing of current problem data. Instructions for data input are given, and a number of example problems are shown. The numerical analysis which is applicable to three-layer sandwich constructions having isotropic thin face sheets and orthotropic cores, is based upon a Ritz-method discretization of the linearized potential energy.
