Thesis Description :

The fundamental aim is to study the properties of architectured/meta materials embedded or not in a softer matrix. Specifically, we will adopt a fundamental structure which can be used to model a large part of meta materials, the pantographic structure. Finally, we could develop the model of 3D pantographic lattice never studied before by considering in a preliminary step simple connections between superimposed pantographic sheets.
