Spectral Characteristics and Localization of Modes in Acoustically Coupled Enclosures
In this paper spectral characteristics and a mode localization in acoustically coupled enclosures were studied numerically. In a theoretical model a low-frequency limit was considered where eigenmodes are weakly damped, thus they were approximated by normal acoustic modes for rigid room walls. The effect of acoustic coupling on the mode frequency, the integrated density of states (IDOS) and the “existence surface” of modes were investigated for several coupling areas. Numerical results indicate that a decrease in coupling area causes a decrease of IDOS and results in a stronger localization of modes.
