Original Abstract

Sandwich panels are widely used in building industry particularly as members of cladding. Although they primarily resist transversal loads, axial forces may arise e.g. due to stabilizing function of panels that may prevent buckling of supporting members of steel load-bearing structure and transfer stabilizing forces. The paper focuses on problem of flexural buckling of sandwich panels with thin steel facings. The problem of stability of axially loaded sandwich panels is outlined. To verify the actual behavior of sandwich panels under axial load, a series of full-scale tests of flexural buckling of selected type of sandwich panels with thin steel facings and soft core was performed. Evaluation of the test results was performed using Southwell plot and statistical methods. The paper presents the utilized test setup, procedure of testing, failure modes and summarizes selected results of the tests. The findings obtained from the tests are discussed.
