The present paper introduces thin-layered absorbers of water-borne sound for frequencies above 250 Hz, in which the losses necessary for absorption are obtained by forced alternating flow of viscous fluids with which there is a transformation of particle velocity. Using streaming fluids of a viscosity of some 103 cP, fluid damped single and coupled resonant systems yield good absorption in a frequency range of up to three octaves. When fluids of smaller viscosity are used, difficulties arise in the adjustment of the necessarily smaller thickness of layer and thus in matching the absorber. Non-Newtonian properties prevent broad-band matching with fluids of viscosities considerably larger than 103 cP.

In the frequency range of 250 Hz to 4 kHz the impedance measurements are carried out in a pressure chamber, while a pulse-tube is used between 4 kHz and 21 kHz.
