Abstract
Sandwich structural designs are the most weight efficient concepts for stability-critical components such as control surfaces. The objective of Phase I of this study was to demonstrate the feasibility of producing a honeycomb sandwich structure using aunique Double Wall Honeycomb design. This new ARDL honeycomb design is called Hexagonal Double wall structure or
