AbstractA new improved model of diffuse field acoustic transmission in symmetrical sandwich panels with thin skins and a soft core is presented in this paper. Generally, asymmetric motion is the only dynamic behaviour which is considered in the modeling of sandwich panels. Bending and membrane behaviour are considered in the skins while the core is assumed to be incompressible over the thickness and experiences only shearing deformations. This set of assumptions is suitable for structures with relatively stiff and thin cores. However, the symmetric mode of motion becomes important for panels with thick and soft cores which exhibit significant compression deformations over the thickness. In this paper, both symmetric and asymmetric modes of motion are considered numerically. Their impact on the transmission loss is addressed in the configuration of a sandwich panel with attached multilayer Noise Control Treatment (NCT). Experimental and literature results are compared with the numerical simulations using the present theoretical approach in order to prove the validity and effectiveness of this approach.
