Optimally graded porous material for broadband perfect absorption of sound

Abstract : This article presents a numerical optimization procedure of continuous gradient porous layer properties to achieve perfect absorption under normal incidence. This design tool is applied on a graded porous medium composed of a periodic arrangement of ordered unit cells allowing to link the effective acoustic properties to its geometry. The best micro-geometry continuous gradient providing the optimal acoustic reflection and/or transmission is designed via a nonlinear conjugate gradient algorithm. The acoustic performances of the so-designed continuous graded material are discussed with respect to the optimized homogeneous, i.e. non-graded, and monotonically graded material. The numerical results show a shifting of the perfect absorption peak to lower frequencies or a widening of the perfect absorption frequency range for graded materials when compared to uniform ones. The results are validated experimentally on 3D-printed samples therefore confirming the relevance of such gradient along with the efficiency of the control of the entire design process. a);
