Scattering from a finite ribbed plate with attached oscillators

Abstract : Double layer structures consisting of stainless steel and polymer rods are designed to blur and attenuate Bragg and Bloch-Floquet scattering from a periodically ribbed plate in a given frequency bandwidth. These structures can be considered as ribbed plate-spring-mass systems, the resonance frequencies of which are obtained from random and circular permutations of five basic oscillators. Analytical and finite element methods are used to find their parameters and tank tests have been carried out to ensure the accuracy of the numerical results and validate the relevance of such a model. It has been found that the typical features associated with the periodicity of the ribs are replaced by a “Christmas tree” appearance when the far field pressure backscattered from the model is displayed in the (frequency, aspect angle) plane. An analysis of backscattering patterns is presented and comparisons with Naval Research Laboratory results are made.
