The objective of this study is to give an overview of existing theories for analyzing the behavior of sandwich beams and plates and to develop an approach for evaluating their behavior under dynamic loading. The dispersion relations for harmonic wave propagation through sandwich structures are shown to be a sound basis for evaluating whether the individual layers are modeled properly. The results provide a guide in the selection of existing models or the development of new models.
