Local effects at core junctions in sandwich structure are assessed experimentally using thermoelastic stress analysis. It is shown that non-adiabatic effects have significant effects on the thermoelastic response from thin aluminium face sheets. It is demonstrated that an experimental model can be constructed that eliminates the non-adiabatic behaviour. It is shown that TSA can obtain accurate data from a sandwich beam loaded in transverse shear via three point bending.
