Abstract

Metamaterials hold a lot of promise as a means to create highly tunable, low weight, and high stiffness materials. The application of these materials to aerostructures could allow fore lighter weight, more efficient aircraft. To date there primary limitations have been reaching a large enough scale to be functionally integrated in commercial aviation. As a solution to the size limitation associated with many metamaterials discrete lattice materials that have identical units that can be assembled into large engineered lattice materials.In this paper we present the analysis of a scalable discrete lattice materials up to full scale commercial aviation vehicles.
