Recent work on the interactive buckling behavior of compressed sandwich structures (Hunt and Wadee, 1998) is extended to orthotropic core materials. The variation of the material properties can tend to maximize the interactive effect such that overall and secondary localized modes are triggered almost simultaneously, giving rise to highly unstable post-buckling behavior in systems of practical dimensions.
