Calculation for the Acoustic Absorption Coefficient of Multilayered Materials by an Improved Extended Transfer Matrix Method
This paper describes an improved extended transfer matrix method to evaluate the acoustic absorption coefficient of multi-layered structure with viscoelactic materials for perpendicular incidence plane acoustic. Here, the dynamic behavior of viscoelastic materials is taken into account. By comparing the calculated and measured results, it is shown that the results calculated by the improved extended transfer matrix method are in good agreement with the results measured. This improved extended transfer matrix method can accurately estimate the sound properties of multilayered structures with viscoelastic materials.
