The purpose of this paper is to investigate the sound absorption by modeling for the aluminum foam produced by press infiltration casting.
First use Johnson-Allard-Champoux (JAC) model to calculate the sound absorption coefficient of the present aluminum foam, and then improve it after finding its deviation from the experimental data, so as to get an improved model that could have a good agreement with the experimental result.
Using JAC model to calculate the sound absorption coefficient of the present aluminum foam, it is found that the model may have a good agreement with the experimental data only for the sound wave frequency below the absorption peak frequency, but a large deviation from the experimental result for the sound wave frequency above this frequency.
Improving JAC model by means of two factors, i.e., the absorption peak frequency and the specific surface area, the resultant improved model could be in good agreement with the experimental data.
