The natural frequency of a thick rectangular sandwich panel was studied using refined shear deformation theory. Both faceshheets and core materials are orthotropic. Nonlinear behavior of shear deformation of sandwich panel was described by a proposed polynomial function. The effect of transverse shear modulus of sandwich core on flexural vibration of the panel was investigated. Comparison was made among the classical thin plate theory, low order shear deformation theory and high order refined shear theory. Results from finite element analysis were also provided to verify the theoretical predictions.
