Honeycomb CF Sandwich structure

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 ?
