|Titolo:||Vortex-type elastic structured media and dynamic shielding|
|Data di pubblicazione:||2012|
|Abstract:||The paper presents an approach to modelling a novel elastic metamaterial structure that possesses non-trivial dispersion features. A system of spinners has been embedded into a two-dimensional periodic lattice system. The analysis of the motion of the spinners is used to derive an expression for a ‘chiral term’ in the equations describing the dynamics of the lattice. Dispersion of elastic waves is shown to possess innovative filtering and polarization properties induced by the vortex-type nature of the structured media. The related effective behaviour in a continuous medium is implemented to build a shielding cloak around an obstacle. Analytical work is accompanied by numerical illustrations.|
