A honeycomb panel consists of an array of open hexagonal cells which their walls are perpendicular to face sheets although other panel sandwiches don’t have these perpendicular walls. Their design is often performed based on minimum weight. This research is aimed at minimizations of weight by means of computing honeycomb core girth. Weight optimization is done by means of Naive and numerical procedures. Numerical optimization is done by the sequential quadratic programming (SQP) method. Geometric parameters and optimized weight are calculated for hexagonal and square cells. Optimized weights for these two cross-sections are compared. Keywords: Honeycomb Weight Optimization, Sandwich Panels, Numerical optimization, Sequential Quadratic Programming.
