(a) Band diagram for a concrete building (20 m × 20 m × 80 m) atop a concrete homogeneous plate (40 m × 40 m × 40 m); Floquet-Bloch conditions are set on vertical sides of the plate and stress-free conditions hold elsewhere; Flat bands correspond to eigenmodes of the building around 1 Hz, 9 Hz, 17 Hz, etc. that couple to the flexural band (lowest band at Γ). (b) Representative eigenmode of (a) at 17 Hz. (c) Eigenmode with suppressed building’s vibration around 17 Hz when the plate is structured with auxetic metamaterial (43 elementary cells with bars making an angle as in Figure 2c).

Current usage metrics show cumulative count of Article Views (full-text article views including HTML views, PDF and ePub downloads, according to the available data) and Abstracts Views on Vision4Press platform.

Data correspond to usage on the plateform after 2015. The current usage metrics is available 48-96 hours after online publication and is updated daily on week days.
