Vigliotti, A and Pasini, D (2012) Linear multiscale analysis and finite element validation of stretching and bending dominated lattice materials. Mechanics of Materials, 46. pp. 57-68. ISSN 0167-6636Full text not available from this repository.
The paper presents a multiscale procedure for the linear analysis of components made of lattice materials. The method allows the analysis of both pin-jointed and rigid-jointed microtruss materials with arbitrary topology of the unit cell. At the macroscopic level, the procedure enables to determine the lattice stiffness, while at the microscopic level the internal forces in the lattice elements are expressed in terms of the macroscopic strain applied to the lattice component. A numeric validation of the method is described. The procedure is completely automated and can be easily used within an optimization framework to find the optimal geometric parameters of a given lattice material. © 2011 Elsevier Ltd.
