Abstract (technical / expert description):


Metamaterials are artificial structures with extraordinary properties as result of their internal architecture. We are investigating mechanical metamaterials manufactured by SEBM. We investigate auxetic materials characterized by a negative Poisson’s ratio as well as phononic band gap materials. Structure design rests upon basic knowledge about mechanisms generated by numerical simulation.
