We investigate the tunable vibration filtering properties of statically compressed one-dimensional diatomic granular crystals composed of arrays of stainless steel spheres and cylinders interacting via Hertzian contact. The arrays consist of periodically repeated three-particle unit cells (spherecylinder-sphere) in which the length of the cylinder is varied systematically. We investigate the response of these granular crystals, given small amplitude dynamic displacements relative to those due… CONTINUE READING
