Research/Original Article (دارای رتبه معتبر)

In this article, the determination of the mechanical properties of a micro-cellular auxetic structure is investigated. This lattice structure consists of hexagonal cells, whose cell-wall dimensions are on a micro-scale. First, using modified strain gradient theory (MSGT) and energy method, the mechanical properties of the micro-cellular auxetic structure are analytically obtained. Then for validation, Young's modulus of a micro-cellular auxetic structure is derived by tensile test and compared with theoretical results. The comparison of analytical and experimental results shows good agreement. A nanosecond laser cutting machine is used to fabricate the microcellular auxetic structure, and the ISO 6892-1 standard is used to perform tensile tests. The results show that the modified strain gradient theory plays an important role in determining the mechanical properties of micro-cellular auxetic structures. In some cases, the results of this theory are more than 100% different from the classical theory. In addition, it can be seen that by changing the dimensional parameters of the micro-cells, the mechanical properties of the auxetic structure can be tunable. For example, by reducing the magnitude of the angle of the cell wall, Young's modulus in the X 1  direction increases, and Young's modulus in the X 2  direction and the shear modulus of the structure decrease
