Two Degree of Freedom Helmholtz Resonator Analysis 2004-01-0387
The Helmholtz resonator is widely used in vehicle exhaust system tuning. The classic Helmholtz theory is based on the Newton's second law. This approach gives a single resonance frequency and a corresponding attenuation peak.
This paper reviews the approach of the one degree of freedom (DOF) Helmholtz system, and extends it to a two-DOF system. The two-DOF system is composed of two Helmholtz resonators which are in series. The new system is described by a two DOF lump-mass vibration system.
