The method of multiple scales is used to obtain a second-order uniformly valid expansion for the nonlinear acoustic wave propagation in a two-dimensional duct whose walls are treated with a nonlinear acoustic material. The wave propagation in the duct is characterized by the unsteady nonlinear Euler equations. The results show that nonlinear effects tend to flatten and broaden the absorption versus frequency curve, in qualitative agreement with the experimental observations. Moreover, the effect of the gas nonlinearity increases with increasing sound frequency, whereas the effect of the material nonlinearity decreases with increasing sound frequency.

Reduction of sound transmission into a circular cylindrical shell using distributed vibration absorbers and Helmholtz resonators Esteve, Simon J.; Johnson, Marty E. (Acoustical Society of America, 2002-12-01)A modal expansion method is used to model a cylindrical enclosure excited by an external plane wave. A set of distributed vibration absorbers (DVAs) and Helmholtz resonators (HRs) are applied to the structure to control ...
Clark, Robert L.; Fuller, Chris R. (Acoustical Society of America, 1992-09-01)A model reference active structural acoustic control (ASAC) approach is investigated as a method for replacing microphone error sensors located in the acoustic field with accelerometers located on the structure. The suggested ...
