Dia-Core is a newly devised core panel formed by gluing/welding two same shaped panel pieces which have periodical indents. It has good cost performance due to easy press forming. Therefore, it is expected to become new core material which can be compete with honeycombs from the total points of view. The basic model of Dia-core is based on Octet-Truss developed by Fuller, and it consists of tetrahedra and octahedra. By varying the geometrical patterns that appear on the panel surfaces, various shaped modified models are devised systematically. In this paper, it is clarified that these pattern variations can be ruled by two geometric parameters, truncation [k] and separation [s]. Next, by numerical simulation using FEM, effects of these two parameters on the representative properties of Dia-Core, bending and in-plane shear rigidity, are clarified.
