Abstract Sheet-based 3D periodic cellular structures attract great attentions due to their lightweight and excellent mechanical properties. Unlike other traditional honeycombs and lattice structures, sheet-based cellular structures consist of triply periodic minimal surface (TPMS) cores, which are continuous through space with a porous cavity surrounded by continuous surfaces. In this study, the crashworthiness of four types of TPMS sheet structures (i.e., Primitive, FRD, IWP, and Gyroid) under axial loading was investigated. According to the results obtained by the nonlinear finite element analysis, the level-constant in the implicit form of TPMS and the shell thickness of TPMS sheet structures were found to affect the crashworthiness significantly. To achieve an optimal design, a metamodel-based multi-objective optimization method was developed to optimize the four types of TPMS sheet structures. Three different metamodels, i.e., Kriging (KRG), polynomial response surface (PRS) and radial basis function (RBF), were compared to identify the most accurate model, which was then utilized for the optimization. Followed by the multiobjective optimization, four Pareto fronts of these TPMS sheet structures were plotted and compared, of which the FRD-sheet structure was found to have the best energy absorption capacity. Moreover, the crashworthiness of the TPMS sheet structures was compared with that of the other materials or structures in nature and engineering, and an Ashby plot was given. Overall, TPMS sheet structures possess excellent specific energy absorption and specific strength and show great potential for engineering applications.

Abstract The physical and mechanical properties of cellular materials not only depend on the constituent materials but also on the microstructures. Here we show that, when the cellular materials are constructed by self-repeated representative volume elements, their effective elastic tensor can be obtained by a fast Fourier transform-based homogenization method. Numerical examples confirm that the bulk modulus of cellular material with the topology of triply periodic minimal surfaces such as Diam...

Abstract Hierarchical structural design was considered as a promising approach to improve the performance of regular cellular materials. In this study, square hierarchical honeycombs (SHHs) were fabricated by employing a commercial 3D printer, and their in-plane mechanical properties and energy absorption were investigated. The SHHs were constructed by replacing each solid cell wall of a regular square honeycomb (RSH) with different numbers of smaller square substructures. In-plane quasi-static ...

Abstract null null Unlike random cellular materials, in TPMS structures the ligament size and orientation distribution are constant, leading to a directional dependency of the mechanical properties. In this work, the directional dependency of elastic properties of seven TPMS-based structures has been studied in a wide range of the solid phase volume fractions (i.e., 10鈥90%). Our study indicates that the strong and weak directions in IWP, Gyroid, FRD, FKS, and Diamond are diagonal and axial, resp...
