In this paper, the bending and dynamic responses of sandwich panels with the size variation of different sandwich cores and the homogenized cores are analyzed numerically, including the hexagonal and rectangular cores, the square and rhombic cores and the circle and X-shape corrugated cores. In dependence on the ratio of the span dimensions to thickness, the laminate plate theory is also adopted for the static and dynamic analysis of sandwich panels with the homogenized cores. The computational results demonstrate the influencing rule of size variation of unit cells in the sandwich core on the bending and dynamic response of sandwich panels.
