The governing differential equation and natural and rigid boundary conditions have been obtained for a three-layer beam having a middle layer which is primarily shear carrying, using a variational method. Results have been obtained for a fixed-fixed and symply supported beam having a uniform load. For beams having these boundary and loading conditions, curves are presented showing the effect of varying the physical and geometrical properties of the laminated beam on the maximum displacement and stress.
