Vortex-type elastic structured media and dynamic shielding    [PDF]

Michele Brun, Ian S. Jones, Alexander B. Movchan
The paper addresses a novel model of metamaterial structure. A system of
spinners has been embedded into a two-dimensional periodic lattice system. The
equations of motion of spinners are used to derive the expression for the
chiral term in the equations describing the dynamics of the lattice. Dispersion
of elastic waves is shown to possess innovative filtering and polarization
properties induced by the vortextype nature of the structured media. The
related homogenised effective behavior is obtained analytically and it has been
implemented to build a shielding cloak around an obstacle. Analytical work is
accompanied by numerical illustrations.
