Elastodynamic Transformation Cloaking for Non-Centrosymmetric Gradient Solids

In this paper we investigate the possibility of elastodynamic transformation cloaking in bodies made of non-centrosymmetric gradient solids. The goal of transformation cloaking is to hide a hole from elastic disturbances in the sense that the mechanical response of a homogeneous and isotropic body with a hole covered by a cloak would be identical to that of the corresponding homogeneous and isotropic body outside the cloak.

Transformation Cloaking in Elastic Plates

In this paper we formulate the problem of elastodynamic transformation cloaking for Kirchhoff-Love plates and elastic plates with both in-plane and out-of-plane displacements. A cloaking transformation maps the boundary-value problem of an isotropic and homogeneous elastic plate (virtual problem) to that of an anisotropic and inhomogeneous elastic plate with a hole surrounded by a cloak that is to be designed (physical problem). For Kirchhoff-Love plates, the governing equation of the virtual plate is transformed to that of the physical plate up to an unknown scalar field.
