Reduction of Sound Transmission Through Finite Clamped Metamaterial-Based Double-Wall Sandwich Plates with Poroelastic Cores
Finite structures play a more realistic role in applications designed for sound and vibration isolation. Doublepanel structure with poroelastic cores is able to exhibit a superior sound insulation performance in mid-high frequency range, while is relatively inferior to isolate waves at low frequencies. In order to further reduce sound transmission at low frequencies and cater for the actual situation, this paper decides to introduce the metamaterial concept into finite double-wall sandwich plates and presents an analytical model to calculate the sound transmission loss through the metamaterial-based double-panel with fully clamped boundary conditions. The metamaterial-based double-wall sandwich plates are constructed by replacing the bare panel with the metamaterial plate, consisting of a homogeneous plate and periodically attached local resonators. Biot's theory is used to examine the wave propagation in the poroelastic medium. The vibro-acoustic problem of the proposed sandwich plate is solved by employing the modal superposition theory and the Galerkin method. Numerical results show that the sound transmission is significantly reduced at low frequencies. Unique phenomena caused by attached local resonators are explained and the eff ects of resonator inerter, incident angles and damping on the sound insulation properties are also studied.
