Abstract: Micro-perforated absorbers have been studied for decades. In the experimental results of some previous works, an unexpected peak due to the flexible panel vibration effect was found on the absorption coefficient curve. In this paper, the acoustic absorption of a finite flexible micro-perforated panel backed by an air cavity is studied in detail. The absorption formula that is developed for the micro-perforated absorber is based on the modal analysis solution of the classical plate equation coupled with the acoustic wave equation. Another approach to derive a simpler absorption formula is also developed. The predictions from the two formulas are very close, except for those at the resonant frequencies of the higher structural modes and acoustic modes parallel to the panel surface. The theoretical results show good agreement with the measurements. It can be concluded that (1) as the panel vibration effect can dissipate more energy, the corresponding absorption peaks can widen the absorption bandwidth of a micro-perforated absorber by appropriately selecting the parameters such as panel thickness, perforation diameter, and perforation spacing, etc., such that the structural resonant frequency is higher than the absorption peak frequency caused by the perforations; (2) the comparison of the cases of different panel mode shapes does not show a significant difference in the absorption performance; and (3) the structural damping effect can improve the absorption performance at the frequencies between the structural resonant frequencies and the peak frequency of the micro-perforation effect, and decrease the peak absorption values of the structural resonances.
