    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 >

    Adel Y. I. Ashyap1, M. Inam2, M. R. Kamarudin1, M. H. Dahri3, Z. A. Shamsan4,*, K. Almuhanna4, F. Alorifi4

    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 >

    A New Fuzzy Controlled Antenna Network Proposal for Small Satellite Applications

    Chafaa Hamrouni1,*

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.72, No.3, pp. 4233-4248, 2022, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2022.023453

    Abstract This research contributes to small satellite system development based on electromagnetic modeling and an integrated meta-materials antenna networks design for multimedia transmission contents. It includes an adaptive nonsingular mode tracking control design for small satellites systems using fuzzy waveless antenna networks. By analyzing and modeling based on electromagnetic methods, propagation properties of guided waves from metallic structures with simple or complex forms charge partially or entirely by anisotropic materials such as metamaterials. We propose a system control rule to omit uncertainties, including the inevitable approximation errors resulting from the finite number of fuzzy signal power… More >

    Samir Salem Al-Bawri1, Mohammad Tariqul Islam2,*, Kabir Hossain3,4, Thennarasan Sabapathy3,4, Muzammil Jusoh3,4

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.71, No.1, pp. 611-628, 2022, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2022.021244

    Abstract This paper presents a textile-based C-shaped split-ring resonators (SRR) metamaterial (MTM) unit cells with an electrical tunability function. The proposed MTM was composed of two symmetrical C-shaped SRR combined with a central diagonal metal bar, whereas the RF varactor diode is placed on the backside of the splitted ground plane. Stopband behavior of single and array MTM unit cells were analyzed while the achieved negative index physical characteristics were widely studies. Though four different MTM arrays (i.e., 1 × 1, 1 × 2, 2 × 1, and 2 × 2) were analyzed in simulation, a 2… More >

    Topology and Shape Optimization of 2-D and 3-D Micro-Architectured Thermoelastic Metamaterials Using a Parametric Level Set Method

    Ellie Vineyard1, Xin-Lin Gao2,*

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.127, No.3, pp. 819-854, 2021, DOI:10.32604/cmes.2021.015688

    Abstract 2-D and 3-D micro-architectured multiphase thermoelastic metamaterials are designed and analyzed using a parametric level set method for topology optimization and the finite element method. An asymptotic homogenization approach is employed to obtain the effective thermoelastic properties of the multiphase metamaterials. The -constraint multi-objective optimization method is adopted in the formulation. The coefficient of thermal expansion (CTE) and Poisson’s ratio (PR) are chosen as two objective functions, with the CTE optimized and the PR treated as a constraint. The optimization problems are solved by using the method of moving asymptotes. Effective isotropic and anisotropic CTEs More >

    Watcharaphon Naktong1, Amnoiy Ruengwaree1,*, Nuchanart Fhafhiem2, Piyaporn Krachodnok3

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.68, No.2, pp. 1731-1750, 2021, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2021.015843

    Abstract In this paper, the design of a resonator rectenna, based on metamaterials and capable of harvesting radio-frequency energy at 2.45 GHz to power any low-power devices, is presented. The proposed design uses a simple and inexpensive circuit consisting of a microstrip patch antenna with a mushroom-like electromagnetic band gap (EBG), partially reflective surface (PRS) structure, rectifier circuit, voltage multiplier circuit, and 2.45 GHz Wi-Fi module. The mushroom-like EBG sheet was fabricated on an FR4 substrate surrounding the conventional patch antenna to suppress surface waves so as to enhance the antenna performance. Furthermore, the antenna performance More >

    Power Transfer via Metamaterials

    C.J. Stevens1

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.33, No.1, pp. 1-18, 2013, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2013.033.001

    Abstract Metamaterials offer new propagation modes for electromagnetic signals which have been explored as media for data exchange. They also offer a good prospect for efficient power transfer. This paper considers the limits on transferable power and their consequences in relation to magneto inductive waves in 1 and 2 dimensional magnetic metamaterial structures. The upper limit is found to be directly related to the voltage tolerance of capacitances used in the meta-material’s construction. Higher resonant frequencies offer better efficiency and higher maximum powers. For a proposed device operating in the Qi band (100-200k Hz) power transfer More >

    The design of 2D isotropic acoustic metamaterials

    Chunyu Ren, Zhihai Xiang, Zhangzhi Cen

    The International Conference on Computational & Experimental Engineering and Sciences, Vol.16, No.4, pp. 121-122, 2011, DOI:10.3970/icces.2011.016.121

    Abstract Recently, many interesting conceptual devices have been proposed to manipulate the propagation of acoustic waves at will. This is mostly achieved through acoustic metamaterials designed by the coordinate transformation method [1]. However, such materials are usually required to be anisotropic and inhomogeneous, which hampers their realization in practice.

    In this talk, we are going to introduce conformal mapping based transformation acoustics for 2D cases [2]. In this way, the resultant metamaterial parameters are isotropic, which greatly facilitates their implementation. More >

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.31, No.2, pp. 147-156, 2012, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2012.031.147

    Abstract The guided modes are investigated in a five-layered slab waveguide with double claddings of metamaterials using a new graphical method. The dispersion equations in the symmetric and asymmetric five-layered slab waveguide are derived from the presented graphical method, and corresponding field distributions are plotted for the oscillating guided and surface guided modes. The energy flux distribution along the axis is plotted for the surface TE1 mode. More >
