Shell-Core Method for the Analysis of a Long Circular Cylindrical Sandwich Shell Subjected to Axisymmetric Loading
The analysis of a sandwich shell having a thick core and thin outer and inner layers (facings) and subjected to axisymmetric loads is considered. The problem is solved by applying the three-dimensional theory of elasticity to the core and the classical thin shell theory for the outer and inner facings. The displacement and stress continuity conditions are satisfied along the junctions of the facings and core. The results obtained from this solution have been compared with the results obtained from the sandwich shell theory of Fulton.
