How calculate the poisson's ratio of auxetic structure.
I used a reentrant auxetic structure and did a compression test. I tried to find out the normal strain in the X and Y directions. I am not sure which values to consider after getting the simulation results. Kindly guide me through this.

To calculate the Poisson's ratio of an auxetic structure, measure the relative transverse strain (perpendicular to the applied load) divided by the longitudinal strain (parallel to the applied load). spectrum bill support Auxetic materials exhibit a negative Poisson's ratio, meaning they expand laterally when stretched longitudinally. Experimentally, this can be determined through mechanical testing or by analyzing the structural geometry and deformation characteristics under load.
