Fibre composite sandwich has become the new generation of material used in civil infrastructure in the last decade. A structural sandwich is a special form of a laminated composite fabricated by attaching two thin but stiff skins to the lightweight but thick core. Because of this special feature, the sectional area is increased and consequently an increase in its flexural rigidity. The strength of this type of construction results from the combination of properties from the skin, core and interface. In a sandwich structure, the strong and stiff skins carry most of the in-plane and bending loads while the core mainly bears the transverse shear and normal loads.
