Summer School on Elastic Metamaterials : From Theory to Applications 2016

22-29 May 2016, Alghero, Italy

Initiated in the 70’ in the field of electromagnetism, the study of materials having paradoxical dynamical overall behavior is nowadays a transverse topic in contemporary physics. Oddly enough, mechanical metamaterials attracted the attention of physicists only recently with the investigation of acoustic metamaterials, which have very small or vanishing shear resistance. This type of metamaterials is indeed a subclass of the broader family of Elastic Metamaterials. In view of their applications to wave control, either to construct sensor, cloaking device or super-lens, the conception and design of Elastic Metamaterials become a research topic of first importance having important and promising practical applications.
The LIA Coss&Vita, joint research unit between the CNRS Federation of Paris Mechanics Labs and the International Research Center on Mathematics and Mechanics of Complex Systems (MEMOCS), was created by CNRS and University Dell’Aquila in Jan. 2015. It organizes a series of Summer Schools taking place each year during 5 years in order to establish the foundations and present applications of the mechanics of generalized continua.
This Summer School, that will held in The Alghero School of Architecture in Sardinia (Italy), aims at gathering world-renown professors to teach participants the foundations of Mechanical Metamaterials and to point the directions to follow to develop this field.
Lectures will range from theoretical aspects (Brillouin Zone, Bloch Waves, Non-Locality), to experimental ones (Designing, Prototyping and Testing). It will also be the the place for discussions and exchanges in order to build bridges between mechanical, physical and mathematical communities. The event
