Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingArticle in proceedingsResearchpeer-review


We study numerically the frequency band-gap phenomenon for bending waves in an infinite periodic beam. The outcome of the analysis is then subjected to an optimization problem in order to maximize these band-gaps. The band-gap maximization may be performed with respect to material parameters and cross-sectional geometry.
