The compressive characteristics of 2D hexagonal honeycomb structures were studied under high strain using the finite element (FE) method. The stiffness for the FE model was compared and validated with analytical models in the literature. Under large-strain the effect of varying rib thickness of the honeycomb was investigated. Additionally, when the honeycomb was crushed with an indenter, the mechanical response was examined.
