Sound Through Partial Enclosures with Louvers 2001-01-1525

This paper considers the use of partial enclosures and absorbing materials inside those enclosures to dissipate energy. Several experiments were conducted where various parameters of an enclosure were altered and the effect on the noise radiating through the opening was measured. From these results, the parameters that play the most important role in sound radiation through the opening of an enclosure were determined. The two-point method and decomposition theory were used to calculate the transmission loss, which was used as the primary variable to analyze the enclosure's performance; the transmission loss is shown to be a better variable than sound pressure or output sound power for this purpose. Numerical simulations were conducted using the indirect boundary element method, and the results were compared with experimental results.
