Mathematical model for a multichannel active absorption system
Efficient sound absorption at low frequencies is not always easy to achieve using passive materials like foams or mineral wool, due to the large dimensions of materials required and the wavelength involved at that range. In order to find new solutions for this problem, active methods seems to provide a feasible answer. The work presented here introduces a novel mathematical model for a multichannel active sound absorption system based on the wave separation method of Nishimura. The wave separation method is combined with a modal model of a three-dimensional room in order to obtain the controlling parameters of the active system. Theory and simulations are presented. Simulations of the sound pressure field and frequency response inside a room are presented to show the eff ect of the active absorption system. Also, an array of secondary sources is simulated such that a sound absorption coefficient α can be associated with it, in the same way as passive materials are qualified. For comparison, the presented method is contrasted with classical active noise control strategies.
