Investigation on the Acoustic Performance of Multiple Helmholtz Resonator Configurations

Investigation on the Acoustic Performance of Multiple Helmholtz Resonator Configurations Helmholtz resonator is considered and widely accepted as a basic acoustic model in engineering applications and research. In this paper, the normal incidence sound absorption characteristics of series and parallel configurations of Helmholtz resonators is studied analytically, numerically and experimentally. The proposed analytical model for series configuration of HRs comprises of Johnson–Champoux–Allard model and transfer matrix method while parallel configuration of HRs is described using parallel transfer matrix method. The results from proposed analytical models fit well with the finite element method (FEM) results obtained from COMSOL multiphysics. Incorporation of parallel configuration and proper tuning of geometric parameters helps to overcome the trade-off between broad band sound absorption and minimum space utilization.

Abstract

Helmholtz resonator is considered and widely accepted as a basic acoustic model in engineering applications and research. In this paper, the normal incidence sound absorption characteristics of series and parallel configurations of Helmholtz resonators is studied analytically, numerically and experimentally. The proposed analytical model for series configuration of HRs comprises of Johnson–Champoux–Allard model and transfer matrix method while parallel configuration of HRs is described using parallel transfer matrix method. The results from proposed analytical models fit well with the finite element method (FEM) results obtained from COMSOL multiphysics. Incorporation of parallel configuration and proper tuning of geometric parameters helps to overcome the trade-off between broad band sound absorption and minimum space utilization. Also, the experimental observations of one of the parallel configuration substantiates the FEM results. Moreover, the FEM models are more accountable for the variation in neck position and also provide better visualization of acoustic absorption with frequency.
