The dynamic vibration response of sandwich beams with an anti-tetra-chiral lattice as a lightweight sandwiched core have been studied by using a nonlinear finite element analysis (FEA). Since the anti-tetra-chiral structure has a weak shear stiffness, its vibration response is strongly affected by the shear deformation. In our calculation, a 3-point bending flexural test was conducted for calculating the effective shear stiffness as well as the effective Young’s modulus of the chiral core. The natural frequency of the sandwich beam has been calculated by FEA, and predicted by using the Rayleigh-Ritz method, assuming that the sandwich beam is composed of composite continuum materials with equivalent Young’s modulus and shear modulus. Moreover, the natural frequency and damping ration of the sandwich beam produced by a 3D printer bas been measured through a vibration test, and compared with numerical results in order to clarify the effectiveness of the chiral sandwich beam as a mechanical component.
