Double Wall Resonancy Calculator

The double wall frequency in Hz is calculated considering a mass-spring-mass system. The cavity has the role of spring and each wall as a lump mass. The formula used is :
$$ f_{\text{msm}} = \frac{1}{2\pi} \sqrt{\frac{s'_g}{\frac{\rho_{s1} \rho_{s2}}{\rho_{s1} + \rho_{s2}}}}$$ with :

  • \( s'_g \) the dynamic stiffness by unit surface of the gas \( \frac{N}{m^3} \)
  • \( \rho_si \) the mass per unit surface of the material i (N/m²)

The formula of \( s'_g \): $$s'_g = \frac{\gamma P_0}{L_z} = \frac{\rho_0 c_0^2}{L_z} $$ with :
  • \( \gamma\) the Specific Heat Ratio that is equal to 1.4 in air in adiabatic compression and 1 in the case where the cavity is filled with fiber materials due to heat conduction by the fibres
