Gradient acoustic metasurfaces are a class of subwavelength metamaterials that provide unprecedented opportunities to control the direction of reflected and refracted waves, including negative angles in accordance with the diffraction theory and generalized law of reflection. This opens new possibilities in designing metasurfaces for many practical applications in wave engineering. In this work, locally resonant acoustic metamaterials are considered as the building units of the metasurface, which owe their favorable properties to local resonances at the microstructural level. Non-trivial reflection angles are realized by introducing suitable phase modulations along the wave path. The required phase shift is achieved through the variation of geometrical and material parameters of the metamaterial unit cells. The negative reflection of ultrasound waves is demonstrated numerically by means of a finite-element analysis of a fluid-metasurface-solid structure. The results of this study provide new insights and detailed guidelines for designing metasurfaces for controllable acoustic wave reflection.
