    Abstract: The emergence of acoustic metamaterials generated a lot of attention in the study of low-frequency vibration, noise control and reduction in engineering applications. As a result, the elastic wave bandgap characteristics of a two-dimensional microcavity local resonator structure for two soft rubber materials was investigated using finite element me... Show More
