Buckling and postbuckling behaviors of two models of sandwich plate reinforced by carbon nanotubes (CNTs) resting on elastic foundations and subjected to uniaxial compressive and thermomechanical loads are investigated in this paper. Material properties of all constituents are assumed to be temperature dependent and effective properties of CNT-reinforced composite layer are determined according to extended rule of mixture. Governing equations are established within the framework of first-order shear deformation theory taking into account von Karman nonlinearity, initial geometrical imperfection, plate-foundation interaction and tangential elastic constraints of unloaded edges. Three types of loading are considered including uniaxial compression, preexisting thermal load combined with uniaxial compression and preexisting mechanical load combined with thermal load. Approximate analytical solutions are assumed to satisfy simply supported boundary conditions and the Galerkin method is used to derive nonlinear load-deflection relations from which buckling loads and postbuckling equilibrium paths are determined. The most important findings are that tangential constraints of unloaded edges significantly lowers buckling loads and postbuckling load capacity of sandwich plates and, in contrast, buckling loads and postbuckling strength are considerably enhanced as sandwich plate is constructed from CNT-reinforced composite core layer and homogeneous face sheets.
