Abstract: This paper presents the strength characteristics of solid and honeycomb plates under quasi-static loading using finite element analysis (FEA). The aim was to investigate and compare the strength characteristics of solid and honeycomb plates. A comparison of these simulations was conducted based on the strength of material characteristics prediction. Geometrical models for the solid and honeycomb plates subjected to uniform stress were developed and assessed. The effects caused by quasi-static load were studied by comparing the two plates to obtain the stress and translational displacement. The simulations were elastic and the deflection of the solid and honeycomb plates were determined. The results were similar with a deflection of 11.4 mm for the solid plate and 11.3 mm for the honeycomb. However, the stress results were different. Therefore, this comparison method is suitable for evaluating other mechanical structures in the field of strength of materials.
