Paper Abstract

A star-shaped biphasic composite has been characterized and successively manufactured. This particular shape could potentially provide an enhancement in terms of strain energy dissipation when compared against classical composites with circular inclusion. The rationale of this work is to demonstrate by means of FE analysis and successively by dynamic testing that this topology effectively provides an increase in damping
