Formation of rarefaction waves in origami-based metamaterials

15 May 2015 Yasuda Hiromi Chong Christopher Charalampidis Efstathios G. Kevrekidis Panayotis G. Yang Jinkyu

We investigate the nonlinear wave dynamics of origami-based metamaterials composed of Tachi-Miura polyhedron (TMP) unit cells. These cells exhibit strain softening behavior under compression, which can be tuned by modifying their geometrical configurations or initial folded conditions... (read more)
