A novel analytical approach to investigate the finite bending of hyperelastic laminated beams is presented. Two different nonlinear material models are taken into account, which are the compressible Mooney-Rivlin for rubberlike mediums and the Saint Venant-Kirchhoff for less deformable materials. The anticlastic bending is included in the formulation and the analytical expression of the transverse radius of curvature is presented. The stress analysis is performed in each layer separately, by considering the actual stored energy function of the constituents, in both Lagrangian and Eulerian frameworks. The finite bending of a sandwich beam is investigated in terms of stresses and stretches.
