Abstract: The dynamic behaviour of periodic lattice materials is investigated using an equivalent higher-order continuum model obtained by homogenisation of the equations of motion. A gradient continuum enriched with higher-order inertia terms is developed using a combination of finite element discretisation of the unit cell and the continualisation approach. The analysis of the dispersion relations shows that the proposed model is able to capture correctly the physical phenomenon of wave dispersion in lattice structures which is overlooked by classical continuum theories.
