In this paper, a modified theory based upon Reissner’s procedure for the shear-lag effect of the sandwich panel is presented, which includes the effects of the anisotropy of the faces and the shearing rigidity of the core. In order to verify this theory, bending experiments were performed with sandwich panels composed of a soft core, stiffeners, and orthotropic faces. It was found that the effective bending rigidity calculated from this theory was lower than that derived from the classical bending theory and that the theoretical strain distribution on the faces agreed well with the experimental results.
