Insight into phononic bandgap formation is presented using a first principles-type approach where phononic lattices are treated as coupled oscillators connected via massless tethers. The stiffness of the tethers and the mass of the oscillator are varied and their influences on the bandgap formation are deduced. This analysis is reinforced by conducting numerical simulations to examine the modes bounding the bandgap and highlighting the effect of the above parameters. The analysis presented here not only sheds light on the origins of gap formation, but also allows one to define design rules for wide phononic gaps and maximum gap-to-midgap ratios.
