Chiral honeycombs which exhibit auxetic behaviors (negative Poisson's ratios) have attracted much research interest due to their novel mechanical properties. They are broadly used in designing new functional structures, such as energy absorption and noise mitigation materials. To analyze the behaviors of these materials, finite element models are generally adopted, which may require much time and labor to construct and implement. To simplify the numerical modelling, a novel Chiral Beam Elementdoi:10.4172/2168-9873.1000249 fatcat:jmhl3ssugzd7pbv3jiyl2rg6qq
