A theoretical solution is obtained for the problem of the compressive buckling of flat rectangular Metalite type sandwich plates with simply supported loaded edges and clamped unloaded edges. The solution is based upon the general small-deflection theory for flat sandwich plates developed in NACA Rep. 899. A comparison is made of the present results and other solutions of the problem.
