Abstract : This paper treats the instability of a honeycomb sandwich cylinder under axial compression, torsion and external lateral pressure. The simply supported honeycomb-sandwich cylinder considered here has face sheets of equal thickness and an isotropic honeycomb core. Curves are presented for the cases of axial compression and lateral pressure only, as well as torsion only. The combined case is handled by means of interaction equations based on the curves shown.
