Automotive low frequency noise is difficult to control in a traditional way. Locally resonant phononic crystals (PCs) can forbid the propagation of certain frequency. This PCs’ structure also can be fabricated to apply in automotive noise control. The simulation method is applied to establish the model of two-dimensional (2D) locally resonant phononic crystals in order to research the impact of the parameters on the propagation. The band gap of locally resonant phononic crystals in z mode is calculated using the simplified model.
