of homogenization based on the scattering properties of the cluster. Exact formulas for the effective parameters i.e., effective sound speed and effective density are obtained as a function of the location of each cylinder and the physical parameters density and speed of sound of cylinders and the embedded medium. Results for several fluid-fluid composite systems are reported. The case of rigid infinite density cylinders in air is deeply analyzed, showing results for ordered and disordered… Expand

Homogenization theory for periodic distributions of elastic cylinders embedded in a viscous fluid.
A multiple-scattering theory is applied to study the homogenization of clusters of elastic cylinders distributed in a isotropic lattice and embedded in a viscous fluid and it is found that the effective dynamical mass density follows the static estimate. Expand
Anisotropic mass density by two-dimensional acoustic metamaterials
We show that specially designed two-dimensional arrangements of full elastic cylinders embedded in a nonviscous fluid or gas define (in the homogenization limit) a new class of acoustic metamaterialsExpand
Estimating the dynamic effective mass density of random composites.
The effective mass density of an inhomogeneous medium is discussed and expressions are recovered that agree with either the Ament formula or the effective static mass density, depending upon the physical context. Expand
Metasolid with anisotropic mass density
We have developed a homogenization theory for solid phononic crystals which is valid for arbitrary Bravais lattice and any form of inclusions in the unit cell. The theory provides explicitExpand
Acoustic metamaterials for new two-dimensional sonic devices
It has been shown that two-dimensional arrays of rigid or fluidlike cylinders in a fluid or a gas define, in the limit of large wavelengths, a class of acoustic metamaterials whose effectiveExpand
Dispersion of waves in two and three-dimensional periodic media
We consider the propagation of acoustic time-harmonic waves in a homogeneous media containing periodic lattices of spherical or cylindrical inclusions. It is assumed that the wavelength has the orderExpand
Effective dynamic properties of random complex media with spherical particles.
It is demonstrated both theoretically and numerically that the viscosity, often neglected in the literature, indeed plays a significant role in the effective properties of nanofluids. Expand
Slowdown of group velocity in periodic waveguides
We consider the propagation of acoustic, electromagnetic and elastic waves in a one-dimensional periodic two-component material. Accurate asymptotic formulas are provided for the group velocity as aExpand
Dynamical homogenization of a transmission grating
A periodic assembly of acoustically-rigid blocks (termed 'grating'), situated between two half spaces occupied by fluid-like media, lends itself to a rigorous theoretical analysis of its response toExpand
Acoustically penetrable sonic crystals based on fluid-like scatterers
We propose a periodic structure that behaves as a fluid–fluid composite for sound waves, where the building blocks are clusters of rigid scatterers. Such building-blocks are penetrable for acousticExpand
