A system of linear, closed-form stress equations for a steel-concrete-steel sandwich configuration, i.e., the “Composite Ice Wall,” was derived incorporating a formulation of classical beam theory. The stress terms include the longitudinal normal stress, the transverse shear stress and the transverse normal stress. These equations were programmed using Pascal and a parametric study was conducted. Some of the results are included herein. The analytical model produces principal stress contours and centerline deflections very similar to those in the classical beam for comparable pressure loadings.
