This work revisits an interactive buckling model for sandwich beams proposed relatively recently by Hunt and Wadee (Proc R Soc Lond A 454:1197-1216, 1998). Our asymptotic investigations reveal an interesting resonant behaviour which is shown to lie at the origin of the corresponding localised deformations reported in the literature. The very good agreement between the asymptotic results and various direct numerical simulations reinforces the validity of our theoretical arguments and provides an incentive for further research.
