Modeling of multilayered structures including porous materials using hierarchical elements and non coincident meshes

S. Rigobert, F. Sgard, N. Atalla


The coupling of mixed displacement-pressure formulation using hierarchical elements with a finite element plate modeling of an elastic domain assuming non-coincident meshes can be done. It can be used to predict the mean quadratic velocity and the transmission loss of a plate coated with porous materials. The results are very accurate and are with a reduced number of unknowns as compared to classical finite element modeling of the structure with the coincident meshes.
