Abstract : A method of design is presented for sandwich constructions having honeycomb-type cores with thick walls. Equations are derived for calculating the critical stress in the facings of such sandwich panels. Tabulated results of edgewise compression tests are included. Measurements of strain indicated that the honeycomb core material is substantially an orthotropic material.
