Abstract

Cellular materials have become popular as a super-light material for shock absorber and acoustic shields. In order to extend their applications beyond this conventional usage, a reliable material design tool is indispensable to be devdoped. As an effective continuum mechanics oriented method, the coupled multi-level modeling is proposed to represent the mechanical response of advanced cellular materials with open and closed structures. The validity and effectiveness of this hierarchical modeling is demonstrated by comparison with experimental data. Furthermore, the material optimization method for cellular material is proposed by using the unit cell models.
