I am doing my dissertation on lightweight structures. using different types of materials and technology we can construct structures which is light in weight without effecting the strength and durability of the structure!
what about using Nomex - light weight paper honeycomb
thanks frank! your information was helpful!
megan: i am planning to use lightweight structure technology for building permanent structures! how can we honeycomb paper in this case? and in a country like India,where is rains for 4 months, it cannot be used!
Nitish, The notion of "honeycomb" need not be hexagonal in shape. Any type of lattice or matrix (ie material which has an open weave is relatively strong and has integral homogenous strength.)
