Conference paper


We consider a very thin network made of periodically distributed wires. Such a network is a particular case of thin cellular large spaces structures, which are characterized by the fact that the material is distributed along layers (honeycomb structures) or along beams (reinforced structures). The thickness of the material is small compared with the dimension of the period. In the case of networks we have also to take into account their small thickness which makes them plate-like structures.
