Abstract : This report presents the results of tests of commercially produced aluminum honeycomb cores for use in structural sandwich construction. Detailed descriptions of core materials and testing procedures are given. Analyses of experimental data include methods for predicting average strength and stiffness values from basic material properties and core configuration. Included are results of flexure tests of sandwich and an analysis of the data for determining core properties from such tests. Design values of core properties, based on tests of commercial core samples, are presented in tabular form and as stress-strain curves. (Author-PL).
