HOROSHENKOV Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, ;niversity of Bradford, Bradford BD71 DP, England A. CUMMINGS School of Engineering, ;niversity of Hull, Hull H;67 RX, England A simple model of the transverse vibrations of a thin rectangular porous plate saturated by a #uid is proposed. The model is based on the classical theory of homogeneous plates and on Biot's stress}strain relations in an isotropic porous medium with a uniform porosity. Two coupled dynamic equations of equilibrium relating the plate de#ection and the #uid/solid relative displacement are found and their physical interpretation is given. The energy dissipation by viscous friction is included in the model. An approximate calculation of the natural frequencies of vibration is given for rigid plates with various boundary conditions at the edges. The in#uence of porosity, tortuosity and permeability on the resonances is studied and a condition of maximum damping involving these parameters is given. 1. INTRODUCTION The vibration of porous plates is important in the study of #uid}solid interactions with applications in geophysics or in civil engineering, where porous panels are used as sound absorbers. When the material is saturated by air, the approximation of a rigid frame can generally be made. In this approximation, the solid frame is motionless because it is much heavier and more rigid than air. In reality, however, the solid can vibrate in the vicinity of resonance frequencies, resulting in a strong modi"cation of the surface impedance [1, 2]. It has been shown [3] that Biot's theory [4, 5] can be used to determine the displacement of the solid and its e!ect on the calculation of the surface impedance of rigid porous layers. Another approach consists in solving the two-dimensional boundary value problem of the vibration of a porous plate. A rigorous and detailed analytical description of this problem including Biot's equations of poroelasticity has been given by Theodorakopoulos and Beskos [6]. In the present article, an additional assumption valid for thin plates is made and an alternative form of the stress}strain relations introduced by Biot [7, 8] is used. In this formulation, the equations of equilibrium are derived in a simple way without 1 a signi"cant loss of generality. Two coupled equations describing the dynamic equilibrium of the plate are then obtained by introducing inertia forces. Energy dissipation by viscous friction is included through the use of a dynamic #uid density. The calculated de#ection compares very well with the numerical results of reference [6]. The simplicity of the equations obtained gives a better understanding of the physical phenomena involved in the vibration. These equations make an evaluation of the natural resonance frequencies with a range of boundary conditions at the edges possible. In this article, the main results of the classical theory of plates are applied to the non-porous case. This can be justi"ed by the fact that at the scale of the wavelengths the porous medium appears as a continuous medium composed of an e!ective solid and an e!ective #uid in Biot's approach of poroelasticity. The plate is treated as a classical homogeneous plate where elastic, inertial and viscous interactions between the solid and the #uid take place within the pores. These e!ects are described by Biot's coupled equations of motion. The continuity conditions on the pressures and velocities at the interface between the porous surfaces and the surrounding #uid were given by Deresiwicz and Skalak [9]. These are fairly simple and involve the porosity factor. From these conditions, it is possible to model the e!ect of #uid loading on the vibration. The #uid behaviour in the pores is at the centre of this article and so it is natural and coherent to include the e!ect of #uid loading at the interfaces. It is thought that the #uid loading will have less e!ect for porous plates than for non-porous plates, though, because porous media are generally permeable. The e!ect of #uid loading is studied in the ba%ed case by the application of the continuity conditions. For simplicity, this e!ect is not implemented numerically. Attention is particularly focussed on the in#uence of permeability, porosity and tortuosity. 2. STRESS}STRAIN RELATIONS FOR A POROUS PLATE 2.1. BIOT'S STRESS}STRAIN RELATIONS IN AN INFINITE POROUS MEDIUM The stress}strain relations for an unbounded porous medium have been established by Biot. For an isotropic medium with uniform porosity and in the absence of body force, they can be written in the form [8] p #aP d "2ke #jed , (1) ij f ij ij ij P "!aMe#Mf, (2) where 1 du du i j e " # , (3) ij 2 Adx dxB j i e"e #e #e "div u, (4) 11 22 33 f"!div w, w"/(U!u). (5, 6) In these equations, p is the total stress tensor acting in the porous medium, d is the ij ij Kronecker symbol (the convention of summation on repeated indices being implied), P is the #uid pressure in the pores, j and k are the LameH elastic constants of the solid frame de"ned for isotropic media. The coupling coe$cient a and the elastic modulus M have been 2 de"ned by Biot [7]. e is the solid strain tensor expressed as a function of the components ij of the solid displacement u in the system of co-ordinates (x , x , x ), e is the solid dilatation 1 2 3 and the #uid content f is a function of the #uid displacement U and of the porosity /, w being the relative #uid}solid displacement. 2.2. THE BENDING OF A POROUS PLATE The condition of equilibrium of a plate under the action of a load or of a buckling constraint can be written in terms of bending and twisting moments related to the de#ection (see reference [10]). The problem of a porous plate is treated as follows: in a @ , M@ and M@ are calculated, that are directly related to "rst step, moments M 1 2 12 the de#ection of the solid frame but where the "rst two of these are not the actual bending moments in the #uid-saturated material. Then from a relation obtained for the #uid, it is shown that simple relations can be found between M@ , M@ , M@ and the 1 2 12 actual moments. The de#ection w "u of the plate in the deformed state is considered "rst s 3 (see reference [11] for the relations between de#ection, curvatures and bending moments). Since the de#ection is undergone by the solid frame, the elements of the strain tensor in the solid can be calculated from the expression for w . It is then easily shown that the corresponding stresses are p #aP , the resultant of these stresses in the plate thickness ij f corresponding to M@ , M@ and M@ . The advantage of using p #aP is that most of the 1 2 12 ij f results obtained in the theory of thin non-porous homogeneous plates can be applied to the porous case. The dimensions of the plate are a and b, and its thickness is h. The system of co-ordinates (see Figure 1) is chosen so that the plane de"ned by the axes x and x coincides with the 1 2 middle surface of the plate before deformation, x and x being parallel to the sides 1 2 a and b respectively. The axis x is normal to the middle surface. The #uid #ow is assumed to be normal to the plane (x , x ) so that f"!Lw/Lx (see reference [12]). The 1 2 3 component of w along x is written as w"w . The thickness of the plate is taken to be 3 3 smaller than any acoustic wavelength and the additional assumption is made that the variation of amplitude of the #uid displacement within the plate along x is small. This allows one to make the same assumption as in the non-porous case on the normal component of the total stress tensor: p "0, valid for fairly rigid thin plates. The deformations in the thickness of the plate are neglected and only the stresses tangent to the surface are considered. The de#ection is undergone by the #uid-saturated plate and by the solid frame in particular. The useful elements of the strain tensor in the solid are therefore (see reference [11]) L2w L2w L2w s s s e "!x , e "!x , e "!x . (7) 11 3 22 3 12 3 Lx2 Lx2 Lx Lx 1 2 1 2 Figure 1.

These expressions are a particular form of Hooke's law. The general form is p@ "2k@e #j@ed .

RELATIONS BETWEEN THE BENDING MOMENTS Two bending moments and one twisting moment may be associated with the stresses p@ ij given by equation (8), h@2 L2w L2w s s M@ " p@ x dx "!D #l , 1 11 3 3 P A Lx2 Lx2B ~h@2 1 2 h@2 L2w L2w s s M@ " p@ x dx "!D #l , (13) 2 22 3 3 P A Lx2 Lx2B ~h@2 2 1 h@2 L2w M@ " p@ x dx "!D (1!l) , 12 12 3 3 P Lx Lx ~h@2 1 2 where D"Eh3/12(12!l2) is the plate #exural rigidity. The actual moments in the #uid-saturated solid are those associated with the total stresses: h@2 h@2 h@2 M " p x dx , M " p x dx , M " p x dx . (14) 1 11 3 3 2 22 3 3 12 12 3 3 P P P ~h@2 ~h@2 ~h@2 4 A moment, relative to the #uid, may equally be de"ned as [6] h@2 I" P x dx .

The second term on the right-hand side could be integrated by parts but is neglected under the assumption on the amplitude of the #uid displacement. It can be seen from equation (10) that M@ "M #aI, M@ "M #aI, M@ "M (18) 1 1 2 2 12 12 and by using equation (17), the following relations are found between the moments: M "(1#ab)M@ #abM@ , 1 1 2 @ @ @ M "abM #(1#ab)M , M "M , (19) 2 1 2 12 12 @ @ I"!b(M #M ). (20) 1 2 3. DYNAMIC EQUILIBRIUM The case of vibration without energy dissipation is considered "rst. In this case, only elastic and kinetic energies are involved, the elastic energy being responsible for potential forces within the plate while the kinetic energy is the origin of inertia forces. From the expression given by Biot [8] for an unbounded porous medium, the kinetic energy of the plate is expressed as 1 h T" (owR 2#2o wR wR #mwR 2)d<" (owR 2#2o wR wR #mwR 2)dS, (21) s f s s f s 2 P 2 P V S where o, o and m are, respectively, the density of the #uid}solid mixture, the density of the #uid and a mass parameter that can be related to the density of the #uid with the help of the tortuosity q . The integration is performed either over the volume < of the plate or over the middle surface S. The elastic energy is given by U" (p e #p e #p e #P f)d<. (22) 11 11 22 22 12 12 f 5 It can easily be seen that U" (p@ e #p@ e #p@ e )d<. (23) 11 11 22 22 12 12 2 P The equations of dynamic equilibrium can be obtained from Hamilton's principle, that involves minimizing a function of the Lagrangian, the mechanical action, between two instants t and t (see reference [11]). The method preferred here consists in equating the 0 1 projection of the potential and inertia forces derived from the elastic and kinetic energies, along the x -, x - and x -axis (see reference [10]). The resultant along x of all the potential 1 2 3 3 forces acting on and element dx dx of the middle surface of the #uid-saturated porous 1 2 plate is LQ LQ 1 2 f " dx dx # dx dx #q dx dx , (24) p 1 2 1 2 1 2 Lx Lx 1 2 where Q ":h@2 p dx and Q ":h@2 p dx are the total shearing stresses along x , 1 13 3 2 23 3 3 ~h@2 ~h@2 and q is the load applied to the solid as a boundary condition (q has the dimensions of pressure). The inertia forces can be obtained by integrating the time derivative (denoted by a dot over the derived quantity) of the generalized momenta per unit volume of the #uid}solid mixture over the plate thickness. Under the assumption on the amplitude of the #uid displacement, the inertia forces may be expressed as f "h (owK #o wK )dx dx . (25) i s f 1 2 Since the #uid/solid relative displacement is normal to the middle surface, the equilibrium of the moments acting on the mixture along x and x , respectively, may be written as [10] 1 2 LM LM 12 2 ! #Q "0, (26) Lx Lx 1 2 LM LM 21 1 # !Q "0 (27) Lx Lx 2 1 with M "!M . Equating f and f , and combining equations (24), (26) and (27) to 12 21 p i eliminate Q and Q yields the equation of equilibrium in terms of moments, 1 2 L2M L2M L2M 1 2 12 # !2 "!q#h(owK #o wK ) (28) s f 2 2 Lx Lx Lx Lx 1 2 1 2 or, by making use of equations (19), @ @ @ @ @ L2M L2M L2M L2M L2M 1 2 2 1 12 (1#ab) # #ab # !2 "!q#h(owK #o wK ). (29) s f 2 2 2 2 A Lx Lx B A Lx Lx B Lx Lx 1 2 1 2 1 2 The "rst equation of equilibrium in terms of de#ection is obtained by using expressions (13) @ @ @ for M , M and M . A simple expression is found, 1 2 12 (1#ab#abl)D+ 4w #h (owK #o wK )"q (30) s s f 6 with + 4"+ 2(+ 2) and + 2"L2/Lx2#L2/Lx2. The equation of equilibrium is also referred 1 2 to as the plate equation. A second relation can be obtained from equation (2). The microscopic forces per unit volume < acting on the #uid along x are given by LP L2w L2w L2w f s s "aM # !M , (31) Lx A Lx2 Lx2B Lx2 3 1 2 3 while the inertia forces per unit volume are f @"o wK #mwK . Equating the forces i f s (LP /Lx )d< and f @ d< and integrating over the thickness yields the second equation of f 3 i dynamic equilibrium. Under the assumption on the #uid displacement amplitude, the term containing the space derivative of f is neglected throughout the plate and L2w L2w s s aMh # !h (o wK #mwK )"DP, (32) f s A Lx2 Lx2B 1 2 where the integration constant DP"P (!h/2)!P (#h/2) is the pressure di!erence f f corresponding to the boundary conditions applied on the #uid at x "$h/2. Upon inserting the expression for b, the coupled equations of dynamic equilibrium are "nally written as a2Mh3 D# + 4w #h(owK #o wK )"q, (33) s s f A 12 B aMh+ 2w !h(o wK #mwK )"DP. (34) s f s The "rst equation may be interpreted as the instantaneous elastic response of the #uid-saturated plate while the second describes the relative motion between the solid and the #uid. The elastic interactions are quanti"ed by the terms where the coupling coe$cient a appears. The inertial interactions are given by the terms containing the accelerations. In a real situation, the relative #uid}solid motion within the pores is responsible for an energy dissipation with a phase shift, corresponding to a delayed after-e!ect [12]. The e!ects of dissipation by viscous friction should naturally be included in the second equation. They can easily be incorporated by considering the coe$cient m to be frequency dependent, o (u) q(u) m(u)" " o , (35) /2 / u being the angular frequency. The frequency-independent coe$cients m and o have been de"ned by Biot [8]. The harmonic dependence in time is assumed for the displacements, for q and for DP. The dynamic tortuosity q(u) has been introduced by Johnson et al. [13] and can be written as a complex quantity ( j being the imaginary unit complex number) q(u)"q !j F(u), (36) /o u where b is Biot's coe$cient of friction [4] given as a function of the porosity, of the #uid dynamic viscosity g and of the permeability i by b "g/ /i. (37) 7 The viscosity correction function F(u) is close to 1 at low frequencies and describes the e!ects of viscous friction at high frequencies. Various models can be used to evaluate this function [5, 13}16]. The solutions of the plate equations are expressed in the form of double in"nite series, = = w (x , x )" + + =s h (x )t (x ), (38) s 1 2 mn m 1 n 2 m/1 n/1 = = w(x , x )" + + = h (x )t (x ), (39) 1 2 mn m 1 n 2 m/1 n/1 each term of w and w satisfying equations (33) and (34). =s and = are the displacement s mn mn amplitudes at the position (x , x ). h (x ) and t (x ) are the so-called beam functions chosen 1 2 m 1 n 2 to comply with the boundary conditions at the edges. If the plate is simply supported, the products of the beam functions h (x )"sin(mn/a) and t (x )"sin(nn/b) satisfy exactly the m 1 n 2 equations of equilibrium. The excitation terms can also be expressed in the form of double in"nite series. Inserting equations (38) and (39) into equations (33) and (34) leads to a system of two equations and two unknown for each value of the couple (m, n). Solving this system provides the coe$cients = and = . The solutions for w and w are obtained after mn mn S insertion into equations (38) and (39). 3.1. FLUID LOADING The #uid can have an e!ect on the vibration of a plate. This e!ect is accounted for through an additional excitation term or load that must be included in the equations. To evaluate the #uid loading, it is necessary to calculate the surface acoustic pressure: P(x , x ,0)"!o u2 w (x@ , x@ )G(x , x ,0; x@ , x@ ,0) dS@. (40) 1 2 f T 1 2 1 2 1 2 PP This integral is often referred to as the Rayleigh integral where G is the Green function associated with the contribution of a surface element dS@, e~+kR G(x , x ,0; x@ , x@ ,0)" . (41) 1 2 1 2 2nR k"u/c is the wavenumber and R is given by R"J(x !x@ )2#(x !x@ )2. (42) 1 1 2 2 In the present study, the term w (x , x ) is the total velocity "eld in the vicinity of the T 1 2 surface. The total velocity "eld is obtained from a study by Deresiewicz and Skalak [9] on the continuity conditions at the interface between two media involving porous materials. The following continuity equation is given on the velocities at the interface separating a porous medium (1) and a #uid (2), (1!/) uR #/;Q "; , (43) n n n 8 where uR and ;Q are, respectively, the normal components of the solid velocity u5 , of the #uid n n velocity U0 in the porous medium (1) and ;Q the velocity in #uid (2) averaged over the bulk area. Upon using this condition and the de"nition of the #uid}solid relative displacement [8] w"/(U!u), (44) the total velocity "eld in the vicinity of the surface of the porous plate is given by the simple sum wR (x , x )"wR (x , x )#wR (x , x ), (45) T 1 2 s 1 2 1 2 each component of this "eld being parallel to the x -axis. The additional terms due to #uid loading can be written as [17] f P "! P(x , x , 0)h (x )t (x ) dS, (46) mn 1 2 m 1 n 2 PP which can be rewritten in terms of the radiation impedance matrix ZBF as mnpq P BF f " !ju + Z (w ) . (47) mn mnpq T pq pq Inserting equations (38) and (39) into equations (33) and (34) leads to the modal form of the equations of dynamic equilibrium in which the excitation terms q and DP appear as q and mn DP respectively. Equation (33) is interpreted as the response of the #uid-saturated mn plate while equation (34) describes the relative motion between the solid and the #uid and so the #uid loading is accounted for by adding each term f P to q in the modal form of mn mn equation (33). 3.2. NUMERICAL RESULTS The plate de#ection w computed from the present model is compared to the results of Theodorakopoulos and Beskos [6] with the same numerical data for a water-saturated plate of 4]4]0)2 m. The model of Theodorakopoulos and Beskos can be considered as more rigorous than the present model because the use of the moment I" !/ :h@2 P x dx does not imply any restriction on the #uid. Short wavelengths, i.e. f 3 3 ~h@2 several spatial periods of the #uid displacement, are allowed within the plate whereas the amplitude of the #uid}solid relative displacement is considered as constant throughout the plate thickness in the present model. Figure 2 shows the modulus of the de#ection calculated at the centre for a 4]4]0)2 m sandstone plate saturated by water (see Table 1). The material properties are those of Fatt [6, 18]. In the simulation, the plate is uniformly excited by an incident pressure of amplitude P "1400 Pa, constant in the frequency domain. The results for an air-"lled porous panel (&&Y foam'') of 0)5 m]0)5 m]10)70 mm are given in Figure 3. This plate was fabricated at the University of Bradford from recycled car dashboards for noise control application. Its properties are displayed in Table 1. The panel is excited either by a uniform incident pressure of 0)1 Pa amplitude or by a unit point force (1 N) located at x "0)1 m, y "0)15 m. The response is calculated in both cases at 0 0 x"0)25 m, y"0)25 m. 9 Figure 2.

The results given by the two models are very similar and a di!erence of only a few percent is observed on the amplitude in a wide frequency range. As shown in Figure 3, the discrepancy between these models seems to increase when the frequency reaches values of around 5 kHz. The increasing di!erence is certainly a consequence of the breakdown of the assumption that the plate is much thinner than any acoustic wavelength. Nevertheless, because porous plates will involve smaller Young's moduli and higher loss factors, many applications and experimental observations will be carried out at low frequencies and this model can be considered as useful. It involves simple equations and allows theoretical developments for more complicated con"gurations. 10 Figure 3.

APPROXIMATE CALCULATION OF THE NATURAL FREQUENCIES OF VIBRATION OF A POROUS PLATE Warburton [19] has provided useful approximate calculations of the natural frequencies of rectangular plates for any combination of the three basic boundary conditions at the edges: i.e., free, simply supported or clamped. Experiments have been carried out in the present investigation to check the accuracy of the prediction on an aluminium plate of 150]50]0)8 mm, with the two a-sides free and the two b-sides clamped. An excellent agreement of less than 3% error has been obtained for the seven "rst resonance frequencies. A similar evaluation can be made for porous materials if the elastic modulus of the plate is much greater than that of the #uid: i.e., if EAM. This condition will be ful"lled in many cases and in particular for rigid porous plates vibrating in air. In this case, only the inertial interactions are considered in the plate equations, which may be written for free vibration as D+ 4w #h(owK #o wK )"0, o wK #m(u)wK "0 (48, 49) s s f f s and which may be combined into a single equation involving only the de#ection D+ 4w #ho@wK "0 (50) s s with o2 / o@"o! "o! o . (51) m(u) q(u) The case without attenuation is considered "rst, for the evaluation of the resonance frequencies. In this case, equation (50) indicates that the #uid and the solid vibrate in phase 11 with an amplitude ratio of (1!//q ). In the restriction stated in this section, the elastic energy is given by 1 L2w 2 L2w 2 L2w L2w s s s s U" D # #2l 2 P CA Lx2B A Lx2B Lx2 Lx2 S 1 2 1 2 L2w 2 #2(1!l) dS, (52) ALx Lx B D 1 2 the kinetic energy is given by T" h o@wK 2 dS (53) 2 P and, following the method given in reference [19], a frequency factor can be de"ned as / ha 4 X2" o! o u2, A q B n4D a4 a2 "G4#G4 #2 [lH H #(1!l)J J ], (54) x y x y x y b4 b2 giving a value of the natural frequencies for boundary conditions characterized by the values of the coe$cients G , G , H , H , J and J . A useful table of the values taken by these x y x y x y coe$cients for any given set of boundary conditions has been provided by Warburton [19]. For the water-saturated plate of reference [6], the numerical results given by the approximate calculation are close to those provided by the numerical implementation of the model. The eight "rst natural frequencies calculated from the approximate formula (54) are compared to the corresponding &&exact'' frequencies obtained from the full model in Table 2 for Y foam. The agreement is excellent except for the sixth frequency. The reason is that the frequency corresponding to (m, n )"(5, 2) or (2, 5) is 86 Hz. This value is close to that for (m, n)"(4, 4). Due to the high loss factor it is not possible to distinguish the two frequencies and only one intermediate value can be read on the curve. As will be shown, the damping by viscous friction can be important at a particular frequency.

However, the f = simplicity of the expression for u is lost. 5. INFLUENCE OF POROSITY, TORTUOSITY AND PERMEABILITY ON THE RESONANCES The in#uence of porosity and tortuosity on the resonance frequencies can be studied for jb /u/o "0, this imaginary term mainly a!ecting the quality factor of the resonance. Since f f the tortuosity is greater than 1 and the porosity is between 0 and 1, the frequency factor X increases as the porosity decreases or as the tortuosity increases. As a consequence, the resonance frequency will be higher for higher porosities and for lower tortuosities. This is con"rmed by the present numerical results and by those of reference [6]. The in#uence of permeability is studied by reintroducing the coe$cient b . The plate equation is then written in a form similar to that of an oscillating system, q /o b /u = f f D+ 4w #h o! !j w "0, (55) s s A q2 #b2/u2/2o2 q2 #b2/u2/2o2B = f f = f f where the expression in parentheses is the dynamic density o@. By considering the real part of equation (55) and from the expression for X, it can be observed that the resonance frequency decreases as the ratio b /u increases: i.e., as the permeability decreases. Equation (55) also shows that increasing the tortuosity or decreasing the porosity (/2 also appears in b ) reduces the imaginary part and therefore increases the quality factor. Starting from 0, an increase of the ratio b /u (i.e. a decrease of the permeability), results in an increase in damping, which reaches a maximum value and then goes back to 0 as b /u tends to in"nity. In the low frequency range: i.e., for F(u)K1, the dynamic density or apparent mass of the plate can be written as o@"o! o [R(x)#jI(x)], (56) where the function R(x)#j I(x) gives the change in apparent #uid density due to the motion. This function, given by x2 x R(x)" , I(x)" , (57) 1#x2 1#x2 where x"uq /o /b is plotted in Figure 4 as a function of the dimensionless frequency x. = f f The maximum of I(x)is and is reached for x"x "1. As a consequence, the frequency for 2 0 which the damping by viscous friction is maximum is given by b g/ u " " . (58) q /o iq o = f = f The permeability a!ects only u while the porosity and the tortuosity a!ect both u and the 0 0 maximum value of the imaginary part of o@. This frequency is almost identical to Biot's characteristic frequency with the di!erence that it accounts for the tortuosity. It has been introduced by Dunn [20], with a qualitative justi"cation, in the study of the low frequency 13 Figure 4. Real (**) and imaginary (***) parts of the function representing the change in apparent #uid density due to the plate motion. vibrational modes of a #uid-saturated sandstone cylinder. In some applications, u can be chosen to coincide with a plate resonance (given by X) by an appropriate adjustment of the plate dimensions or the clamping conditions. The porosity, the tortuosity and the permeability which are regarded as macroscopic measurable parameters are closely related to the pore microstructure. The porosity and permeability can have a strong e!ect on the vibration of a porous plate [6]. 5.1. VISCOUS AND INERTIA FORCES The in#uence of tortuosity has been little studied and is the subject of this section. Figure 5 shows the modulus of the de#ection calculated from the present model and plotted as a function of frequency for the water-saturated sandstone. This "gure shows that increasing the tortuosity shifts the resonance frequency to lower values and increases the quality factor at the same time, in accordance with the qualitative predictions. As q is increased, the resonance frequency and the damping tend to a limit. A physical explanation of this e!ect in this frequency area is that a higher tortuosity, also called the &&drag parameter'', corresponds to higher inertia terms so that the apparent dynamic density of the plate is higher. Since according to the classical theory of plates, the resonance frequencies are inversely proportional to the density, a higher density of the porous plate will result in lower resonance frequencies. At the same time, it is reasonable to think that a higher drag parameter is associated with a lower rate of frictional sliding in the pores so that the viscous losses are reduced and the quality factor is enhanced. In other terms, increasing the tortuosity is equivalent to &&dragging'' or &&pushing'' more #uid. This can be achieved only if the #uid does not slip along the solid, and if the #uid does not slip along the solid no losses 14 Figure 5.

The study of the in#uence of tortuosity shows the relative contributions of the inertia forces and the friction forces. The conclusion that can be drawn here is that an increase of the inertia forces corresponds to a decrease of the friction forces and vice versa. These forces determine the resonance frequencies and the damping. 5.2. VISCOUS FRICTION IN THE PORES In the example of Figure 3, the smooth shape of the curve is largely due to the fairly high structural loss factor of the porous frame (see Table 1). The damping is also partly caused by the viscous friction occurring in the pores during the vibration. The in#uence of permeability on the damping is studied numerically in this section in the case of the porous sandstone for which a zero loss factor has been taken (see Table 1). It is shown that a frequency for which the damping by viscous friction is maximum exists and is strongly dependent upon the material parameters. The modulus of the de#ection in the vicinity of the lowest resonance frequency has been plotted in Figure 6 as a function of frequency for di!erent values of permeability. For low values of permeability (i"10~1 m2), the resonance curve exhibits a sharp peak close to 21 Hz in this example. The sharpness of the peak implies that the plate and the #uid move practically in phase so that the energy loss by viscous friction in the pores is small. As the permeability is increased, the resonance frequency shifts towards a higher value close to 23 Hz. The peak is also very sharp around this frequency. The interesting point is that an area exists between these two permeabilities where the amplitude of the spectrum decreases dramatically and passes through a minimum. The interpretation of this behaviour is that for each value of permeability, a frequency u exists for which the phase shift between the #uid motion and the solid motion is maximum, the energy loss by viscous friction being 15 Figure 6. First resonance area of a simply supported porous sandstone for di!erent values of permeability. maximum at this point. This behaviour occurs only at a single frequency for a given value of permeability. Similar processes can be observed in other resonance areas for other values of permeability. In the example of Figure 6, a value of i close to 2]10~9 m2 will make the frequency of maximum damping coincide with the resonance at around 22 Hz and renders the peak much smoother. This result can be predicted with a good precision by using the approximate expression for the frequency of maximum damping given by equation (58). A numerical application for three di!erent values of permeability indicates that the damping by viscous friction reaches a maximum at a frequency close to 44 Hz for i"10~9 m2.21)7 Hz for i"2)2]10~9 m2 and 16 Hz for i"3]10~9 m2. Figure 6 shows the maximum damping corresponding to i"2)2]10~9. This formula can be used as a tool in some applications to cancel and undesired resonance by making the frequency of maximum damping by viscous friction coincide with a structural resonance of the plate. A physical interpretation of the variation of damping with permeability can be given by a simple argument and by the qualitative conclusions of the preceding section on the relative contributions of the viscous and inertia forces: In the limit of zero permeability, the #uid is totally dragged and no friction occurs so that the energy loss by this mechanism is zero and a sharp peak is predicted. In the limit of in"nite permeability, sliding between the solid and the #uid occurs but without energy loss because of the in"nite permeability. Between these two limits, Biot's attenuation occurs with a maximum in the function of viscous friction losses. 6. CONCLUSION A theoretical description of the vibration of a porous plate based on the classical theory of homogeneous plates and on Biot's stress}strain relations in porous media has been proposed. For plates thinner than any acoustic wavelength, the assumption of small variations of the amplitude of the relative #uid/solid displacement throughout the thickness can be made and two simple plate equations are found. The "rst of these characterizes the instantaneous elastic response of the #uid-saturated porous plate while the second describes 16 the relative #uid/solid motion, and the delayed after-e!ect if the complex dissipation term is added. Although it is simpler, the model compares very well with the more rigorous theory of Theodorakopoulos and Beskos [6]. For relatively rigid materials where only the inertial interactions are considered, an approximate calculation of the resonance frequencies has been proposed and the in#uences of porosity, tortuosity and permeability have been studied. It is found that the resonance frequency is an increasing function of porosity and of permeability, and a decreasing function of tortuosity. The damping factor is an increasing function of porosity and a decreasing function of tortuosity, and it reaches a maximum value at a frequency determined by the three parameters.
