Abstract:
This study concerns the effects of structural heterogeneity upon mechanical properties, particularly on negative Poisson's ratio. Two separate methods were used to generate two-dimensional honeycombs optimised for a series of material properties, in particular large negative Poisson's ratio and high stiffness. The properties and heterogeneity of crumpled and recycled materials were compared.
