  author={Sang-Hoon Kim and Mukunda P. Das},
  journal={arXiv: Applied Physics},
An earthquake-proof seismic negative belt of an artificial seismic shadow zone is introduced. The belt is composed of acoustic materials which has one of the constituent parameter between density and modulus is negative effectively. It converts the velocity of the seismic wave imaginary, and then creates a stop-band for the seismic frequency range. The belt is an attenuator of a seismic wave that reduces the amplitude of the wave exponentially. Passing the belt underground, the seismic energy…

An Overview of the Health Services Provision in the 2017 Kermanshah Earthquake

Proper coordination and service delivery after unexpected events in Iran have a considerable distance to reaching the desired point, and it is necessary for government officials to have more preparedness in all related affairs and aspects.



Artificial Seismic Shadow Zone by Acoustic Metamaterials

We developed a new method of earthquake-proof engineering to create an artificial seismic shadow zone using acoustic metamaterials. By designing huge empty boxes with a few side-holes corresponding

Seismic Waveguide of Metamaterials

We developed a new method of an earthquake-resistant design to support conventional aseismic system using acoustic metamaterials. The device is an attenuator of a seismic wave that reduces the

Seismic metamaterials based on isochronous mechanical oscillators

This Letter introduces a seismic metamaterial (SM) composed by a chain of mass-in-mass system able to filter the S-waves of an earthquake. We included the effect of the SM into the mono dimensional

Forests as a natural seismic metamaterial: Rayleigh wave bandgaps induced by local resonances

The thesis that resonances in trees result in forests acting as locally resonant metamaterials for Rayleigh surface waves in the geophysics context is explored and bandgaps generated by the coupling of the successive longitudinal resonances of trees with the vertical component of the Rayleigh wave are explored.

One-dimensional structured ultrasonic metamaterials with simultaneously negative dynamic density and modulus

We present theoretically a type of one-dimensional (1D) structured ultrasonic metamaterial that exhibits a forbidden band where both the effective dynamic density and bulk modulus are simultaneously

Elastic metamaterials with simultaneously negative effective shear modulus and mass density.

A type of elastic metamaterial comprising fluid-solid composite inclusions which can possess a negative shear modulus and negative mass density over a large frequency region is proposed, which leads to many interesting phenomena such as negative refraction.

Negative effective mass density of acoustic metamaterial plate decorated with low frequency resonant pillars

We investigate the elastic wave dispersion by a phononic metamaterial plate containing low frequency resonator stubs arranged periodically over the plate. We show that this system not only provides
