Abstract

This work wants to investigate the soundproofing level of passive acoustic metamaterials made of Melamine Foam and cylindrical Aluminum inclusions. Latest research shows promising acoustical possibilities on controlling certain frequencies, varying their geometry or material configuration. Typically, acoustic metamaterials are plates with inclusions that resonate in low frequencies and block basses. Investigation is carried to use them for the improvement of aircraft cabin quietness. An homogenization method is adopted to study the metamaterial: this is modelled as viscoelastic material with inclusions, using a frequency-dependent approach, and the effective properties of the homogenized metamaterial are derived using a micromechanics-based method that allow us to prescribe the simplest mesh for periodical geometries (in this case, cylindrical) by reducing drastically the computation time. MSC Actran is used for vibro-acoustic simulations, in particular for the evaluation of Sound Transmission Loss in metamaterial panels with different volume fractions and in a sandwich panel with metamaterial core. This last has been compared with a classical sandwich panel used in aeronautics and it has been demonstrated that metamaterial gets higher transmission loss over all the frequency range.
