Laminates, Sandwiches and Anti-Sandwiches are classically classified as composite structures. Composite structures are multi-layered thin-walled structural elements which exhibit special geometrical features. For this purpose, plane dimensions \(L_\alpha \;\forall \,\alpha \in \{1,2\}\) and the overall thickness H are used.
