    Prediction of Bandwidth of Metamaterial Antenna Using Pearson Kernel-Based Techniques

    Sherly Alphonse1,*, S. Abinaya1, Sourabh Paul2

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.78, No.3, pp. 3449-3467, 2024, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2024.046403

    Abstract The use of metamaterial enhances the performance of a specific class of antennas known as metamaterial antennas. The radiation cost and quality factor of the antenna are influenced by the size of the antenna. Metamaterial antennas allow for the circumvention of the bandwidth restriction for small antennas. Antenna parameters have recently been predicted using machine learning algorithms in existing literature. Machine learning can take the place of the manual process of experimenting to find the ideal simulated antenna parameters. The accuracy of the prediction will be primarily dependent on the model that is used. In… More >

    Topology Optimization of Metamaterial Microstructures for Negative Poisson’s Ratio under Large Deformation Using a Gradient-Free Method

    Weida Wu, Yiqiang Wang, Zhonghao Gao, Pai Liu*

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.139, No.2, pp. 2001-2026, 2024, DOI:10.32604/cmes.2023.046670

    Abstract Negative Poisson’s ratio (NPR) metamaterials are attractive for their unique mechanical behaviors and potential applications in deformation control and energy absorption. However, when subjected to significant stretching, NPR metamaterials designed under small strain assumption may experience a rapid degradation in NPR performance. To address this issue, this study aims to design metamaterials maintaining a targeted NPR under large deformation by taking advantage of the geometry nonlinearity mechanism. A representative periodic unit cell is modeled considering geometry nonlinearity, and its topology is designed using a gradient-free method. The unit cell microstructural topologies are described with the… More >

    Design and Deformation Behavior of Multi-phase Mechanical Metamaterials

    Huitian Wang1, Junjie You1, Sha Yin1,*

    The International Conference on Computational & Experimental Engineering and Sciences, Vol.25, No.2, pp. 1-1, 2023, DOI:10.32604/icces.2023.010417

    Abstract Strong and tough mechanical metamaterials are highly demanded in engineering application. Nature inspired dual-phase metamaterial composites was developed and examined, by employing architectured lattice materials with different mechanical properties respectively as the constituent matrix and reinforcement phases. Then, the reinforcement phase was incorporated into the matrix phase with specific patterning. The composite metamaterials were simply fabricated using additive manufacturing. From quasistatic compression tests, the strength and toughness could be simultaneously enhanced after the addition of reinforcement phase grains. Through simulation modeling, effects of dual-phase distribution, elementary architecture, parent material and defects on mechanical properties of More >

    Topological Design of Negative Poisson’s Ratio Material Microstructure Under Large Deformation with a Gradient-Free Method

    Pai Liu1,*, Weida Wu1, Yangjun Luo1, Yifan Zhang1

    The International Conference on Computational & Experimental Engineering and Sciences, Vol.25, No.2, pp. 1-1, 2023, DOI:10.32604/icces.2023.09893

    Abstract Lightweight metamaterials with negative Poisson’s ratios (NPRs) have great potential for controlling deformation, absorbing energy, etc. The topology optimization [1] technique is an effective way to design metamaterials. However, as studied in [2], the NPR metamaterial configuration obtained under small deformation assumption may not maintain the desired Poisson’s ratio under relatively large deformation conditions. This paper focuses on the large-deformation NPR metamaterial design based on a gradient-free topology optimization method, i.e. the material-field series expansion (MFSE) method [3]. The metamaterial’s performance is evaluated using the finite element method, taking into account the geometry nonlinearity. By… More >

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.76, No.1, pp. 455-469, 2023, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2023.036655

    Abstract This study proposed a new royal crown-shaped polarisation insensitive double negative triple band microwave range electromagnetic metamaterial absorber (MA). The primary purpose of this study is to utilise the exotic characteristics of this perfect metamaterial absorber (PMA) for microwave wireless communications. The fundamental unit cell of the proposed MA consists of two pentagonal-shaped resonators and two inverse C-shaped metallic components surrounded by a split ring resonator (SRR). The bottom thin copper deposit and upper metallic resonator surface are disjoined by an FR-4 dielectric substrate with 1.6 mm thickness. The CST MW studio, a high-frequency electromagnetic… More >

    Zero-Index Metamaterial Superstrates UWB Antenna for Microwave Imaging Detection

    Mohd Aminudin Jamlos1,*, Nur Amirah Othman1, Wan Azani Mustafa2, Mohd Faizal Jamlos3, Mohamad Nur Khairul Hafizi Rohani2

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.75, No.1, pp. 277-292, 2023, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2023.032840

    Abstract Metamaterials (MTM) can enhance the properties of microwaves and also exceed some limitations of devices used in technical practice. Note that the antenna is the element for realizing a microwave imaging (MWI) system since it is where signal transmission and absorption occur. Ultra-Wideband (UWB) antenna superstrates with MTM elements to ensure the signal transmitted from the antenna reaches the tumor and is absorbed by the same antenna. The lack of conventional head imaging techniques, for instance, Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) and Computerized Tomography (CT)-scan, has been demonstrated in the paper focusing on the point of… More >

    Abstract A 5G wireless system requests a high-performance compact antenna device. This research work aims to report the characterization and verification of the artificial magnetic conductor (AMC) metamaterial for a high-gain planar antenna. The configuration is formed by a double-side structure on an intrinsic dielectric slab.

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.74, No.1, pp. 1765-1782, 2023, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2023.030618

    Abstract A multi-band metamaterial antenna is proposed to operate at the terahertz (THz) band for medical applications. The proposed structure is designed on a polyimide as a support layer, and its radiating elements are made of graphene. Initially, the design is started with a conventional shape showing a single operating frequency at 1.1 THz. To achieve a multi-band operating frequency, the conventional shape was replaced with the proposed metamaterial as a radiating patch that has properties not exist in nature. The multi-band frequencies are obtained without compromising the overall size of the design. The overall size… More >

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.73, No.1, pp. 865-881, 2022, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2022.028550

    Abstract The design of an antenna requires a careful selection of its parameters to retain the desired performance. However, this task is time-consuming when the traditional approaches are employed, which represents a significant challenge. On the other hand, machine learning presents an effective solution to this challenge through a set of regression models that can robustly assist antenna designers to find out the best set of design parameters to achieve the intended performance. In this paper, we propose a novel approach for accurately predicting the bandwidth of metamaterial antenna. The proposed approach is based on employing… More >
