There is a growing interest in the automotive industry on micro-perforated acoustic elements for reducing noise radiation from engine systems. The traditional means of acoustic attenuation through porous materials has some serious drawbacks (poor efficiency at low frequencies, low capability to withstand flow and thermal conditions commonly encountered in engine systems). Novel elements consisting of holes/slits of sizes of about 10-1 mm are currently investigated. An indicator of paramount importance when designing such elements is the acoustic flow impedance (pressure drop across the sample/acoustic particle velocity). A detailed description of the impedance of these elements is necessary for evaluating the efficiency of reflection of acoustic waves. This is required for reducing the propagation of noise further downstream. A concise fundamental theoretical investigation for optimal design is not possible due to highly complex geometries attributed to micro-perforated patterns. Moreover, mean flow, thermal and non-linear effects come into play for vehicle applications. This paper describes preliminary results from a project investigating the above effects.
