Abstract

This work presents an "open" and deployable honeycomb configuration created using kirigami-inspired cutting and folding techniques. The open honeycomb differs from traditional "closed" honeycomb by its reduced density and its increased flexibility. The exploitation of these characteristics for multifunctional applications is the focus of this work. Potential fields in which the open honeycomb could find application include sandwich panel manufacturing, morphing, and deployable structures.
