This paper represents non-linear analysis of sandwich plates under thermal loading in which a new approach is followed. Analysis of rectangular sandwich plates has been carried out in detail. Numerical results have been computed and compared with other known results.

Key words

Thermal loading sandwich plates non-linear analysis 


Questo lavoro illustra l'analisi non lineare delle piastre sandwich sotto carico termico seguendo un nuovo approccio. Si è svolta in dettaglio l'analisi delle piastre rettangolari calcolando valori numerici e paragonandoli con risultati precedentemente noti.
