A taxonomy is developed to describe prismatic cellular materials (PCM) explicitly to allow for unambiguous discussion of cellular topology. The taxonomy represents a PCM through describing (1) the unit cell (UC) and (2) the tiling or unit cell arrangements. The UC is described through three characteristics: boundary, interior, and connections of the unit cell with its adjacent structural members. Each of these are further refined into sub-divisions. The taxonomy is evaluated through three metrics: completeness, perceptual orthogonality, and depth. Using this descriptive taxonomy, researchers can more uniformly describe the development efforts that they are pursuing.
