EN In this paper, a novel auxetic structure with rotating squares with holes is investigated. The unit cell of the structure consists of four units in the shape of a square with cut corners and holes. Finally, the structure represents a kind of modified auxetic structure made of rotating squares with holes or sheets of material with regularly arranged diamond and square cuts. Effective and dynamic properties of these structures depend on geometrical properties of the structure. The structures are characterized by an effective Poisson’s ratio from negative to positive values (from about minus one to about plus one). Numerical analysis is made for different geometrical features of the unit cells. The simulations enabled the determination of the dynamic characteristic of the analyzed structures using vibration transmission loss, transmissibility, and mechanical impedance. Numerical calculations were conducted using the finite element method. In the analyzed cases of cellular auxetic structures, a linear elasticity model of the material is assumed. The dynamic characteristic of modified rotating square structures is strongly dependent not only on frequency. The dynamic behavior could also be enhanced by adjusting the geometric parameter of the structure. Auxetic and non-auxetic structures show different static and dynamic properties. The dynamic properties of the analyzed structures were examined in order to determine the frequency ranges of dynamic loads for which the values of mechanical impedance and transmissibility are appropriate.
