This paper presents a new metamaterial plate (metaplate) made by a periodic repetition of ‘frame-springs-mass’ systems for vibration isolation. Numerical studies and experimental measurements demonstrate that the proposed structure show a complete 3D phononic bandgap in the low-frequency range. In the numerical computation of the transmission diagram, the self-weight gravity, the material damping, the geometry of the metaplate and different boundary conditions are considered. A prototype of the proposed metaplate, made of Polyamide, is fabricated by means of additive manufacturing and experimentally tested. The measured transmission diagram is in good agreement with numerical predictions, thus proving the proposed design and promoting potential applications such as low-frequency vibration isolation and stress wave mitigation.

Abstract

This paper presents a new metamaterial plate (metaplate) made by a periodic repetition of ‘frame-springs-mass’ systems for vibration isolation. Numerical studies and experimental measurements demonstrate that the proposed structure show a complete 3D phononic bandgap in the low-frequency range. In the numerical computation of the transmission diagram, the self-weight gravity, the material damping, the geometry of the metaplate and different boundary conditions are considered. A prototype of the proposed metaplate, made of Polyamide, is fabricated by means of additive manufacturing and experimentally tested. The measured transmission diagram is in good agreement with numerical predictions, thus proving the proposed design and promoting potential applications such as low-frequency vibration isolation and stress wave mitigation.
