A numerical method for stress analysis of three-layered, honeycomb-type sandwich plates and shells of arbitrary thickness is illustrated by application to a thick conical frustum. Results are demonstrated in a numerical example. The method features an exact elasticity analysis of the core including transverse shear and transverse normal stress. The facings are treated by classical shell theory. The numerical method used is forward integration.
