As one kind with the best comprehensive performance of various honeycombs, triangular honeycomb is an important structure to achieve lightweight. Focusing on the deficiency of the non-optimized macro-material distribution in uniform triangular honeycomb, a design and modeling method of variable-density triangular honeycomb structures was proposed. With a three-point bending beam as the design object, type and sizes of honeycomb cells were specified beforehand. The beam was topology-optimized… CONTINUE READING
