Abstract
Buckling behavior of sandwich plates under combined uniform lateral pressure, inplane compressive load and inplane shear load is analyzed using Rayleigh-Ritz Method. Minimum weight design of sandwich plates is also performed based on structural stability under some constraints of wrinkling. stresses and deflections. By the present approach. it is possible to design optimal scantlings of the faces and the core of the sandwich plates.
