A multiple scattering formulation for finite-size flexural metasurfaces

  title={A multiple scattering formulation for finite-size flexural metasurfaces},
  author={Xingbo Pu and Antonio Palermo and Alessandro Marzani},
We provide an analytical formulation to model the propagation of elastic waves in a homogeneous half-space supporting an array of thin plates. The technique provides the displacement field obtained from the interaction between an incident wave generated by a harmonic source and the scattered fields induced by the flexural motion of the plates. The scattered field generated by each plate is calculated using an ad-hoc set of Green’s functions. The interaction between the incident field and the…

Seismic metasurfaces: Sub-wavelength resonators and Rayleigh wave interaction
We consider the canonical problem of an array of rods, which act as resonators, placed on an elastic substrate; the substrate being either a thin elastic plate or an elastic half-space. In both cases
Rayleigh waves in locally resonant metamaterials
Abstract The design of metamaterials for surface waves control is an emerging field of research which can impact several technical applications, from electronic devices based on surface acoustic
An asymptotic hyperbolic–elliptic model for flexural-seismic metasurfaces
The effect of the flexural motion of the resonators is considered, adapting a recently established asymptotic methodology that leads to an explicit scalar hyperbolic equation governing the propagation of Rayleigh-like waves.
Design of a resonant Luneburg lens for surface acoustic waves.
Comparison between the ray analysis and experimental results offers insight into the behaviour of this type of metasurface especially in the proximity of the acoustic bandgaps and highlights the possibility for acoustic shielding.
Lamb's problem for a half-space coupled to a generic distribution of oscillators at the surface
We propose an analytical framework to model the effect of single and multiple mechanical surface oscillators on the dynamics of vertically polarized elastic waves propagating in a semi-infinite
A seismic metamaterial: The resonant metawedge
The efficiency of the resonant metawedge shows that large-scale mechanical metamaterials are feasible, will have application, and that the time is ripe for considering many optical devices in the seismic and geophysical context.
Wave propagation in presence of oscillators on the free surface
Abstract This article is devoted to wave propagation in presence of a periodic distribution of oscillators (3D sprung-damped mass) on the surface of an elastic medium. The case of an elastic half
Control of Love waves by resonant metasurfaces
This work derives an original closed-form dispersion relation for the metasurface and reveals the possibility to control the Love waves dispersive properties by varying the resonators mechanical parameters.
Seismic metasurfaces on porous layered media: Surface resonators and fluid-solid interaction effects on the propagation of Rayleigh waves
Abstract Seismic surface wave mitigation using metamaterials is a growing research field propelled by intrinsic theoretical value and possible application prospects. Up to date, the complexity of
Locally resonant surface acoustic wave band gaps in a two-dimensional phononic crystal of pillars on a surface
We investigate theoretically the propagation of acoustic waves in a two-dimensional array of cylindrical pillars on the surface of a semi-infinite substrate. Through the computation of the band
