Review: Auxetic Polymer-Based Mechanical Metamaterials for Biomedical Applications.

Over the last three decades but more particularly during the last 5 years, auxetic mechanical metamaterials constructed from precisely architected polymer-based materials have attracted considerable

Lightweight mechanical metamaterials designed using hierarchical truss elements

Rotating unit systems constitute one of the main classes of auxetic metamaterials. In this work, a new design procedure for lightweight auxetic systems based on this deformation mechanism is proposed

Notch Flexure as Kirigami Cut for Tunable Mechanical Stretchability towards Metamaterial Application

ABSTRACT Kirigami is an art of paper cutting, which can be used in mechanical metamaterials, actuators, and energy absorption based on its deployable and load-deflection characteristics. Traditional

The Multidirectional Auxeticity and Negative Linear Compressibility of a 3D Mechanical Metamaterial

This work analyses the potential of a specific three-dimensional mechanical metamaterial composed of arrowhead-like structural units to exhibit a negative Poisson’s ratio for an arbitrary loading direction to enhance its versatility and suitability for a number of applications where materials exhibiting auxetic behaviour or negative linear compressibility are normally implemented.

Rotating squares auxetic metamaterials with improved strain tolerance

Rotating squares auxetic metamaterials have the peculiar feature of a negative Poisson’s ratio. This work proposes and examines how an innovative variable arcs fillet solution, at the interconnection



Analysis of the Deformation Behavior and Mechanical Properties of Slit‐Perforated Auxetic Metamaterials

Perforated systems constitute one of the most important classes of mechanical metamaterials. In this work, two types of “I”‐shaped slit perforation patterns are proposed which may be used to design

Mechanical metamaterials with star-shaped pores exhibiting negative and zero Poisson's ratio

Hierarchical Auxetic Mechanical Metamaterials

Using simulations on typical hierarchical multi-level rotating squares, it is shown that, through design, one can control the extent of auxeticity, degree of aperture and size of the different pores in the system, making the system more versatile than similar non-hierarchical ones.

Assembly of Advanced Materials into 3D Functional Structures by Methods Inspired by Origami and Kirigami: A Review

Origami and kirigami, the ancient techniques for making paper works of art, also provide inspiration for routes to structural platforms in engineering applications, including foldable solar panels,

Micro‐/Nanostructured Mechanical Metamaterials

Various aspects of the micro-/nano-structured materials as mechanical metamaterials, potential tools for their multidimensional fabrication, and selected methods for their structural and performance characterization are described, as well as some prospects for the future developments in this exciting and emerging field.

Design and Fabrication of Stent with Negative Poisson’s Ratio

The negative Poisson’s ratios can be described in terms of models based on the geometry of the system and the way this geometry changes due to applied loads. As the Poisson’s ratio does not depend on

Harnessing instabilities for design of soft reconfigurable auxetic/chiral materials

This work exploits mechanical instabilities to design a class of 2D soft materials whose architecture can be dramatically changed in response to an external stimulus by considering geometric constraints on the tessellations of the 2D Euclidean plane.

On the Auxetic Properties of 'Rotating Rectangles' with Different Connectivity

Auxetic materials and structures exhibit the unusual property of becoming wider when stretched and thinner when compressed, i.e., they have negative Poisson’s ratios. In recent years, this unusual

Propagation of pop ups in kirigami shells

This study shows that, in cylindrical kirigami shells, the snapping-induced curvature inversion of the initially bent ligaments results in a pop-up process that first localizes near an imperfection and then, as the deformation is increased, progressively spreads through the structure.
