Abstract: An interesting number of structural designs utilize sandwich type construction in the fabrication of major structural components. A high strength to weight ratio is achieved by combining a relatively thick lightweight core with two thin high-strength faces. Reviewed here are two linear finite element capabilities for skew sandwich plates. The two formulations are evaluated and compared with existing solutions for stresses and displacements.
