The width b of the beam is 8.0 in., the thickness t of the faces is 0.25 in., and the height hc of the core is 5.5 in. (total height h 6.0 in.). The moduli of elasticity are 10.5 106 psi for the aluminum faces and 12,000 psi for the foam core. A bending moment M 40 k-in. acts about the z axis. Determine the maximum stresses in the faces and the core using (a) the general theory for composite beams, and (b) the approximate theory for sand wich beams. t z C b Probs. 6.2-7 and 6.2-8 Solution 6.2-7 hc h t Sandwich beam I2 bh3 c 12 M 40 k.in.
