Abstract : A system of differential equations for the small deflection of a sandwich plate is developed by means of a variational theorem. From these equations a governing differential equation for the deflection of a sandwich plate is derived. Solutions of this resultant equation, based on the present theory, may be readily obtained through the use of the techniques that were developed in the classical theory of plates. Three examples are presented. (Author)
