Presented is a practical and efficient method for the analysis of arbitrarily supported sandwich beams. Based on the previously derived set of governing variational equations, the present method utilizes familiar transfer matrix procedure. Final solutions for the displacement and stresses consist of two terms reflecting correspondingly the conventional (solid) beam bending and the cross-sectional distortion. The proposed method is illustrated in a few examples and the results are plotted for a wide range of geometric and material parameters.
