Mechanical performance of 3D printed interpenetrating phase composites with spinodal topologies

Equivalent continuum method of plane-stress dominated plate-lattice materials

Inverse-designed spinodoid metamaterials

An efficient and robust machine learning technique for the inverse design of (meta-)materials is introduced which, when applied to spinodoid topologies, enables us to generate uniform and functionally graded cellular mechanical metamaterials with tailored direction-dependent stiffness and density.

Soap film inspired mechanical metamaterials approaching theoretical bound of stiffness across full density range

Structural mechanical metamaterials, with their mass-efficient architectures and unprecedented mechanical properties, are in critical demand for high-performance applications. However, finding the…

Numerical study on the effect of geometry on mechanical behavior of triply periodic minimal surfaces

Metallic cellular structures with triply periodic minimal surfaces (TPMS) is a great approach to enhance multifunctionality for several engineering disciplines. In the present study, we aimed to…

Fracture toughness of semi-regular lattices

Previous studies have shown that the kagome lattice has a remarkably high fracture toughness. This architecture is one of eight semi-regular tessellations, and this work aims to quantify the…



Mechanical metamaterials at the theoretical limit of isotropic elastic stiffness

This work identifies a material geometry that achieves the Hashin–Shtrikman upper bounds on isotropic elastic stiffness, and finds that stiff but well distributed networks of plates are required to transfer loads efficiently between neighbouring members.

This paper summarizes a little of the way in which the mechanical properties of cellular solids are analysed and illustrates the range of properties offered by alternative configurations.

Morphology and topology in coarsening of domains via non-conserved and conserved dynamics

We investigate the late-stage coarsening of three-dimensional two-phase structures using non-conserved and conserved dynamics. Mixtures with a volume fraction of a phase of 50% are studied for…

Mechanical properties and scaling laws of nanoporous gold

Nanoporous metals are a class of novel nanomaterials with potential applications in many fields such as sensing, catalysis, and fuel cells. The present paper is aimed to investigate atomic mechanisms…

Compressive strength of hollow microlattices: Experimental characterization, modeling, and optimal design

Recent advances in multiscale manufacturing enable fabrication of hollow-truss based lattices with dimensional control spanning seven orders of magnitude in length scale (from ;50 nm to;10 cm), thus…
