Hello again Peter,


So I did everything that you suggested and finally the simulation did present quite acceptable solutions.



I want to ask though. What are the differences of Equivalent stress (Von-Mises) and Normal Stress ? They have different values for the core that I am mostly interested in since its a solid block but with Orthotropic properties (AL 5056). Also, when I press play those values change.


Equivalent Stress: 


Normal Stress: 


Should I add any other solution specifically for the purposes of looking if the honeycomb works as intended ? I just want to show that this method works and that its not necessary to model an actual 3d solid honeycomb. 


Thank you for your time.


Michael
