Elastic Cloaking with Polar Material

Application ID: 111141

In this example, the External Stress feature in the Solid Mechanics interface is used to provide the material model with the nonsymmetric stress required in the design of an elastic invisibility cloak. The cloak is a domain with special material properties aimed at shielding a region of space from both P and S waves.

This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
