I need to use a honeycomb structure in a project, knowing that you can increase the thickness and with it all the propreties that come with it (stiffness being the most important i guess).
My question is as follows:
-do I make the plate in a single part with an accurate design of the honeycomb and top&botton CF plies ?
-do I make a single surface pad and go from there ?
I know that in order to simulate a composite material, you need to create a surface and then define it as shell. But when you select composite and the sandwich, what kind of core does it consider ? Foam, honeycomb ? The only thing you can control is the thickness, but the structure of the core plays a more important role.
So, is this possible ? Can you accuratelly simulate it ?
