Solutions are developed for shear flows in multicell sandwich sections for various cell- twist distributions. The problems of twisting and bending of a cantilever beam are first considered. More general cell-twist distributions are then considered, including the arbitrary distribution. A formula is also developed for the torsion constant of a sandwich section.
