Abstract : The distribution of inter-laminar shear stress in sandwich beams is examined. It is found that in soft coned, three-ply sandwich beams elementary 'equivalent section' theory cannot be used to determine the position of maximum shear. The accuracy of the sandwich relations is experimentally illustrated on laminated beams and wire wound rings. (Author)
