Acoustic metamaterials have been a topic of particular interest in recent years, and have enabled extreme macroscopic characteristics such as negative, near-zero or anisotropic dynamic effective fluid properties to be achieved. Such exotic properties are obtained through the design of the microstructure, which make use of simple acoustic elements to create microscale dynamics that result in the desired macroscopic properties.
