Theoretical solutions are presented for the buckling in uniform axial compression of two types of simply supported curved sandwich plates: the corrugated-core type and the isotropic-core type. The solutions are obtained from a theory for orthotropic curved plates in which deflections due to shear are taken into account. Results are given in the form of equations and curves.
