Most materials exhibit positive Poisson's ratio (PR) values, but special structures can also present negative and, even rarer, zero (or close to zero) PR. Null PR structures have received much attention due to their unusual properties and potential applications in different fields, such as aeronautics and bioengineering. Herein, a new and simple near‐zero PR 2D topological model is presented based on a structural block composed of two smooth and rigid bars connected by a soft membrane or spring…

Sequential metamaterials with alternating Poisson’s ratios

Mechanical metamaterials have been designed to achieve custom Poisson’s ratios via the deformation of their microarchitecture. These designs, however, have yet to achieve the capability of exhibiting

Extreme on-demand contactless modulation of elastic properties in magnetostrictive lattices

2D lattices are widely popular in micro-architected metamaterial design as they are easy to manufacture and provide lightweight multifunctional properties. The mechanical properties of such lattice

Mathematical modeling of auxetic systems: bridging the gap between analytical models and observation

The Poisson’s ratio, a property which quantifies the changes in thickness when a material is stretched and compressed, can be determined as the negative of the transverse strain over the applied

Mechanical Properties of a Novel Zero Poisson's Ratio Honeycomb

In this paper, a novel honeycomb is proposed by embedding a rib into every cell of the existing zero Poisson's ratio (ZPR) configuration, semi re‐entrant honeycomb (SRH). Analytical model is

Hexagonal Honeycombs with Zero Poisson's Ratios and Enhanced Stiffness

In view of their potential applications in sandwich structures, there has been increasing interest in honeycomb networks. Several different types of honeycomb systems have been proposed each

Poisson's ratio and modern materials

On the bicentenary of the publication of Poisson's Traité de Mécanique, the continuing relevance of Poissons's ratio in the understanding of the mechanical characteristics of modern materials is reviewed.

A Three-dimensional Polymer Scaffolding Material Exhibiting a Zero Poisson's Ratio.

Techniques used in this work allow Poisson's ratio to be both scale-independent and independent of the choice of strut material for strains in the elastic regime, and therefore ZPR behavior can be imparted to a variety of photocurable biomaterial.

Crystalline networks with unusual predicted mechanical and thermal properties

MOST materials shrink laterally and become less dense when stretched. Materials that both expand laterally (that is, have negative Poisson's ratio) and densify when stretched are of interest both

Three-dimensionally bonded spongy graphene material with super compressive elasticity and near-zero Poisson’s ratio

The scalable self-assembly of randomly oriented graphene sheets into additive-free, essentially homogenous graphene sponge materials that provide a combination of both cork-like and rubber-like properties and display Poisson's ratios in all directions that are near-zero.
