Abstract. This work shows the design of one-dimensional periodic structures composed by inelastic materials. These structures are composed by multilayer unit cells with different materials (linear and non-linear). In this work, we design three types of unit cells. Newmark scheme for integration and finite element method for space discretization are used in the algorithms. The unit cell design proposed in this work can be extended to multidimensional problems.
