Abstract:

A comparison between measured and simulated characteristics of helix loaded media reveals a good agreement for the resonance frequency but significant differences with respect to the resonance bandwidth. This phenomenon is related to the geometrical variations of the commercially available helices due to tolerances. This is confirmed by two models developed to describe these effects.
