sandwich construction

[′san‚wich kən‚strək·shən]
(design engineering)
Composite construction of alloys, plastics, wood, or other materials consisting of a foam or honeycomb layer laminated and glued between two hard outer sheets. Also known as sandwich laminate.

Sandwich construction

Composite construction consisting of a core of insulation and outer layers of higher density materials with greater strength.

sandwich construction

A composite construction consisting of relatively thin layers of a material (having high-strength properties) bonded to a thicker, weaker, light core material; results in high ratios of strength to weight and stiffness to weight.

Layer of bonding or brazing material making perfect seal.
A type of construction in which two load-bearing skins are separated by a core of stiffening material, generally lightweight, to provide high strength, light weight, and rigidity. The two load-bearing materials have different physical properties.
