The plane section AC Β has distorted into the curve A'CB\ the typical point Ρ having moved a distance u to the right. The shear strain γ at F I G . 18. Shear deformation of sandwich beam with stiff core. 44 ANALYSIS OF STRUCTURAL SANDWICH PANELS Ρ is therefore du/dz and the shear stress is du r = G^-. 57) may be combined and integrated to yield an expression for u: " - ^ { ^ ( τ - τ ) } · <"» There is no constant o f integration because u and ζ vanish simultaneously.

Beam with Four-point Loading (Antiplane Core and Thick Faces) A n ordinary homogeneous beam with four-point loading is illustrated in Fig. 14a. The central region is subjected to a constant bending moment — WLb and it therefore bends into a circular arc o f curvature +WLb/EL This fact is often used to determine the flexural rigidity EI of a simple beam, usually by measuring the deflections o f three different points in the central region. SANDWICH BEAMS 37 The method is also used to determine the flexural rigidity o f sandwich beams, on the assumption that because there is no shear force in the central region, there can be no shear deflection there and the deformation is one o f pure bending.
