Reissner's equations for isotropic sandwich plates are used to derive a set of stiffness coefficients which, in conjunction with a stiffness method, can be used to analyze folded plate structures made from sandwich panels. The derivation results in a stiffness matrix which can be used directly in the stiffness formulation outlined by Scordelis for homogeneous folded plates.
