Correlation of existing design information on sandwich construction

by Ogilvie, Douglas C.

Abstract (Summary)
The problem considered is one of survey and correlation of existing design information on sandwich construction. The subject matter deals with the types of sandwiches, advantages, buckling and stress analysis, published test data, design methods, core materials, weight comparisons, current applications and the manufacture, repair and inspection of sandwich construction. Suggestions for extensions needed are given and where obvious improvements in analysis could be seen, these modified methods were suggested. Suggested further work - Every phase of sandwich construction considered in the present thesis shows need for further development. Particularly useful fields for further work are the development of more adequate stress analysis methods for the core, more general correlation of existing formulas and the development of better means of attachment, inspection and repair.
