In this study, we investigated dispersion curves and the band gap structure of a multiresonator mass-in-mass lattice system. The unit cell of the lattice system consists of three separate masses connected by linear springs. It was demonstrated that the band gaps can be shifted by varying the spring constant and the magnitude of the internal masses. By using the conventional monatomic (single mass) lattice model as an equivalent system, the effective mass was found to become negative for frequencies in the band gaps. An attempt was made to represent the two-resonator mass-in-mass lattice with a microstructure continuum model. It was found that the microstructure continuum model can capture the dispersive behavior and band gap structure of the original two-resonator mass-in-mass system.
