Within periodically heterogeneous materials and structures, wave scattering and dispersion occur across constituent material interfaces leading to a banded frequency response. A novel multiscale dispersive design methodology is presented by which periodic unit cells are designed for desired frequency band structures, and are used as building blocks for forming fully or partially periodic structures, typically at larger length scales. Structures resulting from this hierarchical design approach are tailored to desired dynamical characteristics without the necessity for altering the overall geometric shape of the structure nor employing dissipative damping materials. Case studies are presented for shock isolation and frequency sensing.
