Dynamic behaviors of phase transforming cellular structures

Dynamic behaviors of phase transforming cellular structures In this work, the dynamic behaviors of phase transforming cellular structures (PTCS) consisted of sinusoidal beam with bi-stable configurations are studied. A nonlinear spring-bead model is developed, where the mechanical properties of the sinusoidal beam are described by a nonlinear spring and the mass is concentrated at the bead. Therefore, the PTCS are modeled as a chain of nonlinear spring-bead. Based on the nonlinear spring-bead model, the quasi-static and dynamic behaviors of PTCS are theoretically and numerically studied, which shows abundant dynamic behaviors depending on the loading rate and damping coefficient. For a 2-layered PTCS, there are four deformation patterns, that is the snap through deformation of the sinusoidal beams for relatively small loading rate and damping coefficient, the uniform deformation for relatively large damping coefficient, and the pulse deformation of the springs near bi-stable configurations for relatively large loading rate and small damping coefficient. While, for the multilayer PTCS, their dynamic behaviors are much more complicated due to the combined deformation of the multiple sinusoidal beams. However, the similar snap through and pulse deformation of the sinusoidal beams are also observed, respectively.

Abstract

In this work, the dynamic behaviors of phase transforming cellular structures (PTCS) consisted of sinusoidal beam with bi-stable configurations are studied. A nonlinear spring-bead model is developed, where the mechanical properties of the sinusoidal beam are described by a nonlinear spring and the mass is concentrated at the bead. Therefore, the PTCS are modeled as a chain of nonlinear spring-bead. Based on the nonlinear spring-bead model, the quasi-static and dynamic behaviors of PTCS are theoretically and numerically studied, which shows abundant dynamic behaviors depending on the loading rate and damping coefficient. For a 2-layered PTCS, there are four deformation patterns, that is the snap through deformation of the sinusoidal beams for relatively small loading rate and damping coefficient, the uniform deformation for relatively large damping coefficient, and the pulse deformation of the springs near bi-stable configurations for relatively large loading rate and small damping coefficient. While, for the multilayer PTCS, their dynamic behaviors are much more complicated due to the combined deformation of the multiple sinusoidal beams. However, the similar snap through and pulse deformation of the sinusoidal beams are also observed, respectively. To our knowledge, this work is the first time to systematically study the dynamic behaviors of PTCS.
