Abstract

The minimal-weight design of sandwich plates whose rigidplastic face sheets obey the Tresca yield condition and which are subjected to two alternative loads is systematically determined by the method of stress variation. It is shown that, when the loads are unidirectional, the general solution for a certain class of edge conditions consists of five fundamentally different designs. The totality of optimal design solutions is depicted in the form of a design chart. A comprehensive example is presented to illustrate the method.
