Acoustic metamaterial, which can prohibit effectively the elastic wave propagation in the bandgap frequency range, has broad application prospects in the vibration and noise reduction areas. The Lindstedt–Poincaré method was utilized to analyze the dispersion curves of nonlinear metamaterial with a pure Duffing oscillator. The first-order perturbation solutions of acoustic and optical branches were obtained. Both the starting and cutoff frequencies of the bandgap are determined consequently. It

By further researching the degraded linear system, the conclusion that actual nonlinear metamaterial bandgap region is wider than effective negative mass region is drawn and that both mass and stiffness ratio effect on the starting frequency is obtained. Effective positive mass can also lead to the vibration attenuation in bandgap. For nonlinear metamaterial, the translation effect of the external excitation amplitude on the bandgap range and the zero mass at the nonlinear bandgap cutoff frequency were discussed, and all above conclusion are identified by numerical analysis.
