Size-dependent elastic properties of micro- and nano-honeycombs

Zhu, Hanxing ORCID: 2010. Size-dependent elastic properties of micro- and nano-honeycombs. Journal of the Mechanics and Physics of Solids 58 (5) , pp. 696-709. 10.1016/j.jmps.2010.02.009

Detailed mathematical derivation and simple closed form results for the size-dependent elastic properties of micro- and nano-sized honeycombs are presented in this paper. The results indicate that at micrometer scale, strain gradient has a dominant effect and at nano-meter scale, surface elasticity dominates the effect on the honeycomb elastic properties. The in-plane elastic properties of a nano- or micro-honeycomb could be controlled to vary over a range of around 10% by adjusting the initial stress in the cell walls by applying an electric potential. In addition, the bending and shear rigidities of some commonly used micro- and nano-structural elements have been obtained and presented in this paper, which could be of important applications in the design of MEMS and NEMS.
