# A class of auxetic three-dimensional lattices

@article{Cabras2016ACO, title={A class of auxetic three-dimensional lattices}, author={L. Cabras and M. Brun}, journal={Journal of The Mechanics and Physics of Solids}, year={2016}, volume={91}, pages={56-72} }

Abstract We propose a class of auxetic three-dimensional lattice structures. The elastic microstructure can be designed to have an omnidirectional Poisson's ratio arbitrarily close to the stability limit of −1. The cubic behaviour of the periodic system has been fully characterized; the minimum and maximum Poisson's ratio and the associated principal directions are given as a function of the microstructural parameters. The initial microstructure is then modified into a body-centred cubic system… Expand
