    Abstract

    The minimum weight criterion of a sandwich panel with respect to a given bending stiffness and strength is verified. For this purpose a number of sandwich constructions consisting of a foamed PVC core and glass fibre reinforced epoxy faces are tested in a four-point bending test. An optimum is found for both the bending stiffness and strength as design parameters
