Abstract: Aluminum sandwich construction has been recognized as a promising concept for structural design of light weight systems such as wings of aircraft. A sandwich construction, which consists of two thin facing layers separated by a thick core, offers various advantages for design of weight critical structure. Depending on the specific mission requirements of the structures, aluminum alloys, high tensile steels, titanium or composites are used as the material of facings skins. Several core shapes and material may be utilized in the construction of sandwich among them, it has been known that the aluminum honeycomb core has excellent properties with regard to weight savings and fabrication costs. This paper is theoretically calculate bending behavior, of sandwich panels and to compare the strength to weight ratios of Normal Aluminium rod(panel) and Aluminium Honey Comb Panel.
