Paper Abstract

Phononic crystals are synthetic materials with a periodic structure having spatial variations of elasto-inertial properties of constituent materials, aimed at developing devices and bulk material with engineered acoustic/ elastic properties. Multi-material structures with sides of a space filling polygonal tessellation, can constitute solid-solid phononic crystal. Coupled with inclusions and features, phononic crystals show rich and varied band structure phenomenon. We use frequency domain spectral superelement method and Bloch theory to efficiently calculate the band structures of such phononic crystals. We particularly investigate hexagonal honeycombs to assess the impacts of joint elasticity, inertia and circular and elliptical holes on band gap behavior.
