Classical beam (or plate) equation for homogeneous members is rather satisfactory in vibration analysis involving flexural vibrations and in normal and shear stress analysis for engineering applications. It is the purpose of this investigation to arrive at such a single equation for the elastic sandwich plates and beams.
