    A High-Efficiency Inversion Method for the Material Parameters of an Alberich-Type Sound Absorption Coating Based on a Deep Learning Model

    Yiping Sun1,2, Jiadui Chen1, Qiang Bai1, Xuefeng Zhao1, Meng Tao1,*

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.131, No.3, pp. 1693-1716, 2022, DOI:10.32604/cmes.2022.019336

    Abstract Research on the acoustic performance of an anechoic coating composed of cavities in a viscoelastic material has recently become an area of great interest. Traditional forward research methods are unable to manipulate sound waves accurately and effectively, are difficult to analyse, have time-consuming solution processes, and have large optimization search spaces. To address these issues, this paper proposes a deep learning-based inverse research method to efficiently invert the material parameters of Alberich-type sound absorption coatings and rapidly predict their acoustic performance. First, an autoencoder (AE) model is pretrained to reconstruct the viscoelastic material parameters of an Alberich-type sound absorption coating,… More >

    Optimization of Sound Absorption and Insulation Performances of a Dual-Cavity Resonant Micro-Perforated Plate

    Wei Chen1,2, Zhaofeng Guo3,4,*, Hongda Feng3,4, Sheng Hu1,2, Ling Lu1,2, Chuanmin Chen3,4, Xiaowen Wu1,2, Hao Cao1,2

    FDMP-Fluid Dynamics & Materials Processing, Vol.18, No.2, pp. 481-496, 2022, DOI:10.32604/fdmp.2022.015746

    Abstract This study investigates a dual-cavity resonant composite sound-absorbing structure based on a micro-perforated plate. Using the COMSOL impedance tube model, the effects of various structural parameters on sound absorption and sound insulation performances are analyzed. Results show that the aperture of the micro-perforated plate has the greatest influence on the sound absorption coefficient; the smaller the aperture, the greater is this coefficient. The thickness of the resonance plate has the most significant influence on the sound insulation and resonance frequency; the greater the thickness, the wider the frequency domain in which sound insulation is obtained. In addition, the effect of… More >

    Improving the Morphological Parameters of Aluminum Foam for Maximum Sound Absorption Coefficient using Genetic Algorithm

    Mohammad Javad Jafari1, Mohsen Niknam Sharak2, Ali Khavanin3, Touraj Ebadzadeh4, Mahmood Fazlali5, Rohollah Fallah Madvari6,*

    Sound & Vibration, Vol.55, No.2, pp. 117-130, 2021, DOI:10.32604/sv.2021.09729

    Abstract Fabricating of metal foams with desired morphological parameters including pore size, porosity and pore opening is possible now using sintering technology. Thus, if it is possible to determine the morphology of metal foam to absorb sound at a given frequency, and then fabricate it through sintering, it is expected to have optimized metal foams for the best sound absorption. Theoretical sound absorption models such as Lu model describe the relationship between morphological parameters and the sound absorption coefficient. In this study, the Lu model was used to optimize the morphological parameters of Aluminum metal foam for the best sound absorption… More >

    A Combined Shape and Topology Optimization Based on Isogeometric Boundary Element Method for 3D Acoustics

    Jie Wang, Fuhang Jiang, Wenchang Zhao, Haibo Chen*

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.127, No.2, pp. 645-681, 2021, DOI:10.32604/cmes.2021.015894

    Abstract A combined shape and topology optimization algorithm based on isogeometric boundary element method for 3D acoustics is developed in this study. The key treatment involves using adjoint variable method in shape sensitivity analysis with respect to non-uniform rational basis splines control points, and in topology sensitivity analysis with respect to the artificial densities of sound absorption material. OpenMP tool in Fortran code is adopted to improve the efficiency of analysis. To consider the features and efficiencies of the two types of optimization methods, this study adopts a combined iteration scheme for the optimization process to investigate the simultaneous change of… More >

    Effect of Plastocene Embedment in the Microperforated Plate on Its Acoustic Performance

    Yipu Wang1, Yonghua Wang1,2,*, Zheming Liu1, Huadong Yu1, Jinkai Xu1

    Journal of Renewable Materials, Vol.9, No.5, pp. 923-941, 2021, DOI:10.32604/jrm.2021.014138

    Abstract Noise pollution is one of the contemporary environmental pollution, which seriously damages people’s green and healthy life. In order to further improve the low frequency sound absorption performance of microperforated panel (MPP), a new plastocene coupled microperforated plate (PCMPP) is proposed. The acoustic properties of PCMPP with different apertures and perforation ratio were measured by transfer function method and compared with that of conventional MPPs. It is found that when the aperture was 0.8 mm, the peak value of sound absorption coefficient of PCMPP decreased by 150 Hz compared with MPP. In a certain range, PCMPP with larger apertures showed… More >

    Sound & Vibration, Vol.53, No.5, pp. 207-222, 2019, DOI:10.32604/sv.2019.06523

    Abstract Polyurethane foam as the most well-known absorbent materials has a suitable absorption coefficient only within a limited frequency range. The aim of this study was to improve the sound absorption coefficient of flexible polyurethane (PU) foam within the range of various frequencies using clay nanoparticles, polyacrylonitrile nanofibers, and polyvinylidene fluoride nanofibers. The response surface method was used to determine the effect of addition of nanofi- bers of PAN and PVDF, addition of clay nanoparticles, absorbent thickness, and air gap on the sound absorption coefficient of flexible polyurethane foam (PU) across different frequency ranges. The absorption coefficient of the samples was… More >
