Honeycomb sandwich composite structures have been widely used to create stiff panels. A great everyday example of something similar to honeycomb composites is corrugated cardboard. Look at most shipping boxes and you will see it is made of an outside and inside layer of cardboard with a zig-zag shaped cardboard sandwiched in between. This positions the outside and inside layer further from the neutral axis, so in bending, the cardboard is stiff, but very light to not add weight to the shipment. 😊
