Abstract:

1. The face sheets fulfill the Love-Kirchoff assumptions and are thin compared with the core. 2. The bonding between the face sheets and the core is assumed to be perfect. 3. The kinematic boundary conditions at the interfaces between the core and the facings are satisfied. 4. The core is assumed to be a weak orthotropic transversely compressible core carrying only the transverse strains and the normal strain. 5. The shock wave pressure is uniformly distributed on the front face of the sandwich plate.
