In this study, the flexural rigidity of a honeycomb consisting of regular hexagonal cells is investigated. It is found that the bending deformation of the honeycomb cannot be evaluated by using the equivalent elastic moduli obtained from the in-plane deformation since the moments acting on inclined walls of honeycomb cell are different for the in-plane deformation and bending deformation. Based on the fact that the inclined wall of the honeycomb is twisted under the condition that the rotation… CONTINUE READING
