The cellular microstructure of periodic architected materials can be enriched by local intracellular mechanisms providing innovative distributed functionalities. Specifically, high-performing mechanical metamaterials can be realized by coupling the low-dissipative cellular microstructure with a periodic distribution of tunable damped oscillators, or resonators, vibrating at relatively high amplitudes. The benefit is the actual possibility of combining the design of wave-stopping bands with enhanced energy dissipation properties. This paper investigates the nonlinear dispersion properties of an archetypal mechanical metamaterial, represented by a one-dimensional lattice model characterized by a diatomic periodic cell. The intracellular interatomic interactions feature geometric and constitutive nonlinearities, which determine cubic coupling between the lattice and the resonators. The non-dissipative part of the coupling can be designed to exhibit a softening or a hardening behavior, by independently tuning the geometric and elastic stiffnesses. The nonlinear wavefrequencies and waveforms away from internal resonances are analytically determined by adopting a perturbation technique. The employed approach makes use of tools borrowed from Hamiltonian perturbation theory, together with techniques often used in the context of nearly-integrable Hamiltonian systems.The dispersion spectra are determined in closed, asymptotically approximate, form as a nonlinear function of the time-dependent decreasing amplitude decrement. The invariant manifolds defined by the harmonic periodic motions are also analytically determined. The asymptotic results are further validated numerically.
