Calculation of Sound Radiation Power at Two Ends of Duct System
A method to calculate the radiation sound power from the sound source characteristic of the duct component is developed here; The relationship between the sound source characteristic and the acoustical boundary conditions of the duct ends is also researched by the experiment. Based on the two-port model, the sound source characteristic and the sound transfer matrix of the duct component can be obtained by the numerical or experimental methods. The calculation model to predict the radiation sound power at the end of the duct system is deduced from the sound source characteristic of the duct component. A simple experimental duct system to validate the calculation model is setup and the measurement and calculation results are compared here as well.
