A micro-inertia gradient visco-elastic motivation for proportional damping


In this paper, a micro-inertia gradient visco-elasticity theory is proposed and implemented for the description of wave dispersion in periodic visco-elastic composites characterised by (stiffness-)proportional damping. An expression for the internal length parameter has been derived in terms of geometry and material properties. The theory has been validated… (More)
