If I understand you correctly, using those rigidity (EI) numbers is sufficient information - but you need to do some manual juggling work with the numbers. If the honeycomb panel (sheet + honeycomb + sheet) is 6 mm, the solid geometry in ANSYS does not necessarily need to be 6 mm? Could you please give a simple example using some arbitrary numbers and plate size (and thickness)? Would be really helpful to see if I understand it correctly. If the sheet panels are isotropic, and I have the data rigidity data available for the honeycomb core only - could I make it as shell (isotropic) + solid (orthotropic) + shell (isotropic) with shared topology?
