Triply coupled vibration through periodic thin-walled open cross section nonsymmetrical beams composed of two kinds of material is studied in this paper. Based on the triply coupled vibration equation, plane wave expansion method for the thin-walled beams is provided. If the filling fraction keeps constant, the lattice is one of the factors that affect the normalized gap width. If the lattice and filling fraction keep constant, the Young’s modulus contrast plays a fundamental role for the band gap width, but not density contrast. Finally, the frequency response of a finite periodic binary beam is simulated with finite element method, which provides an attenuation of over 20dB in the frequency range of the band gaps. The findings will be significant in the application of phononic crystals.
