My ESR3 subject is about sandwich core periodic cells topology effects. The purpose of this subject is to create and study 3D periodic lattices using the Kirigami’s technique. Some initals works have been made with Kirigami, and it seems to provide good results in term of vibroacoustics performance and damping. However, some further work is needed to use Kirigami in a systematic way to produce honeycomb topologies for vibroacoustics, and that is the point that will be processed during the thesis. The research will be organised as follows : 1/ Use mathematic formulations to create systematic honeycombs and implemant it in CAD/CAM tools 2/ Simulations studies of the honeycomb using Floquet-Bloch theory and FEM 3/ Manufacturing samples using state-of-art production processes 4/ Experimental studies in statics and dynamics to compare with the simulations After my last 6 months internship, which was a preparation to the VIPER project and more precisely to the ESR3 subject, a great satisfaction appeared inside me and I knew without hesitation that I found my way. Indeed, it requires mathematic and algorithm skills, imagination to create new types of structure, and of course all of that in mechanical and aerospace discipline, which are the two domains where I always wanted to work. The fact of use abstract tools (mathematics) to create and produce concrete structures for aerospace and more generally transports always fascinated me. Moreover, the VIPER project gives the great opportunity to work in several places around the world (France, UK, USA). That provides mobility background, which is very interesting for professional and personal experience. All these points made that I am particularly motivated, and I will do everything to make progress the researches on Kirigami and vibroacoustic effects.
