Acoustic metamaterials are introduced as the structures with the alternating elements possessing effective properties that can be tuned seeking for the dramatic control on wave propagation. Homogenization of the structure under consideration is needed aiming to calculate permittivity of metamaterial. We present theoretical outcomes studying an acoustic composite possessing negative effective parameters in the acoustic frequency range. An acoustic metamaterial with an the alternating nanowires arranged in a building block and embedded in a host material was investigated. Propagation of surface plasmon polaritons at the metamaterial interface was predicted.
