Abstract:

A formalism of the response of an infinite, plane, and uniform panel is derived in terms of the impulse response function. The modification of the impulse response function caused by attaching parallel line mechanical constraints is considered. It is shown that the impulse response function of the so constrained panel can be cast in the form of two terms. The first is simply the impulse response of the unconstrained panel. The second is a functional of the impulse response function of the unconstrained panel and the impedances of the line mechanical constraints. It is argued that the formalism so cast is particularly suitable for ascertaining the modification to the response introduced by line mechanical constraints ribs. The argument is exemplified by deriving the expressions for the transmission coefficient across the ribs, the radiation to the far field generated by the presence of the ribs, and the change in the reflective properties of the panel introduced by the ribs.
