Metamaterials with engineered microstructures exhibit exceptional properties such as negative Poisson’s ratio, energy absorption, and bandgap. These materials can prevent propagation of elastic waves in certain range of frequency called bandgap. The microstructure of these materials affects the overall response of the structures. Microstructures may undergo significant rotations and their rotary inertia needs to be considered along with deformation. As the metamaterials in the study involve cracks, we develop a finite deformation micropolar peridynamics (PD) theory. The proposed PD micropolar theory is validated by comparing the results obtained from the boundary element solutions of plate with a hole. The response of metamaterials with periodic arrangement of holes and cracks is studied under static and dynamic loads and the results are compared with the nonpolar PD theory.
