15 March 2018 Response invariance in a lattice of bistable elements with elastic interactions

In this study, the dynamics of a lattice of bistable elements connected by linear springs are investigated with emphasis on the spatial dependence of the response profiles created by the nonlinear transition wave. We address the difficulty in creating a permanent-form transition wave in real-world settings even though such a solution theoretically exists and explain how to utilize the speed difference in wave propagation to minimize this undesirable behavior through numerical investigations. We further introduce dissipative elements along with asymmetric on-site potentials to the baseline lattice and show that almost perfect response invariance can be achieved, where the response is not only spatially independent but also input-independent.
