Optimal Rainbow Metamaterials for Extended Vibrational Stopbands (2019)
Presentation / Conference
Chronopoulos, D. (2019, December). Optimal Rainbow Metamaterials for Extended Vibrational Stopbands. Paper presented at ICADO 2019: 13. International Conference on Aerospace Design and Optimization, London, UK

Nonperiodic metamaterials can have better vibration attenuation than periodic metamaterials with properly designed resonator distributions. In this study, we propose optimal design routes for rainbow metamaterials. The rainbow metamaterials are nonpe... Read More about Optimal Rainbow Metamaterials for Extended Vibrational Stopbands.
