Macro-dynamics of elastic and viscoelastic micro-periodic composites

Czesław Woźniak
In this contribution we propose a new non-asymptotic method of macro-modelling of periodic materials and structures. The obtained models can be applied to the analysis of vibration and wave propagation problems with the wavelength of an order of a periodicity cell dimension. The consideration are restricted to the linear elastic and viscoelastic materials and the small deformation gradient theory.
