Phononic Band Gap Structures as Optimal Designs
In this paper we use topology optimization to design phononic band gap structures. We consider 2D structures subjected to periodic loading and obtain the distribution of two materials with high contrast in material properties that gives the minimal vibrational response of the structure. Both in-plane and out-of-plane vibrations are considered.
