2014 MRS Fall Meeting


NN4.06 - Numerical Simulation of Wave Propagation in Dynamic Materials


Dec 2, 2014 10:30am ‐ Dec 2, 2014 10:45am

Description

Dynamic materials are artificially constructed structures (like metamaterials) which may vary their characteristic properties in space or in time, or both, by an appropriate arrangement or control. These controlled changes in time can be provided by the application of an external (non-mechanical) field, or through a phase transition. Such materials exhibit very unusual behavior.
In principle, all materials change their properties with time, but very slowly and smoothly. To avoid any misunderstanding, we specify that these controlled changes in properties of dynamic materials should be realized in a short or quasi-nil time lapse and over a sufficiently large material region.

The characteristic phenomenon for dynamic materials is wave propagation because it is also space and time dependent. As a simple example of the complex behavior of dynamic materials, the one-dimensional elastic wave propagation is studied numerically in periodic structures whose properties (mass density, elasticity) can be switched suddenly in space and in time. It is shown that dynamic materials have the ability to dynamically amplify, tune, and compress initial signals over a wide range of carrier frequencies.

The thermodynamically consistent high-resolution finite-volume numerical method was successfully applied to the study of the behavior of dynamic materials. The extended analysis of the influence of inner reflections on the energy accumulation and concentration in the dynamic materials is presented.
