Apparatus for and method of attenuating acoustic energy

Image Number 3 for United States Patent #6033756.

A sound attenuating element is provided which comprises a closed cell foam layer (2) having a plurality of channels (4) formed therein. The element is, in use, placed adjacent a surface such that an air gap is formed between the foam layer and the surface. The channels couple to the air gap to form a plurality of Helmholtz resonators.
