In this article, the writer points out that in order to be fully aware of what type of panel is being addressed by this study, various types of panels must be examined and understood. The writer notes that there are various types of panels that are more significant to the discussion than others, and some types of panels also have more information written about them. The writer maintains that because of this, there are panels discussed that have more information about them than other panels, but every effort is made to ensure that each type of panel has enough information collected about it to ensure that the reader has a clear understanding of the type of panel and the important information that surrounds each one. Diagrams and figures are also provided where they are available to help with the understanding of the different types of panels that are discussed.

Literature Review
Soft and Laminated Core Sandwich Panels
One Way Stiffened Core Panels
Two Way Stiffened Core Panels

From the Paper:

"One way stiffened core panels must also be addressed as a type of panel that is important to discuss within the confines of this particular review of the literature. These panels are significant for many different types of applications, as are all of the panels that are being discussed within this review of the literature. Two way stiffened core panels will also be addressed in the next section. The subsections below, however, will address the different types of one way stiffened core panels, including Z-core, C-core, Trussed Core, and Zig Zag Core panels.
While one way stiffened core panels are important to address, it is also necessary to ensure that the different types of these panels are examined, because they all work differently and are created differently (Gdoutos, Daniel, Wang & Abot, 2001). This indicates that, while they all may work well, some of them will work better for specific types of applications, and it is necessary to be aware of what types of applications are the best choices for each particular panel."
