Sound transmission loss of insulating complex structures

S. Ghinet, N. Atalla


The Transfer Matrix Method (TMM) is extended to handle the transmission loss of finite stiffened and orthotropic structures lined by porous materials in a multi-layered configuration. The effects of curvature, stiffeners and heterogeneity are considered. The resulting model is easily adaptable to multi-layer configurations.
