In the last decade it emerged the interest in new types of acoustic insulating materials, called acoustic metamaterials. These materials are composed by a host and inclusions and are arranged periodically or non-periodically in sub-wavelength elements called meta-atoms. Their inclusions and internal geometries can be manipulated to tailor the acoustic properties, reducing weight, and increasing at the same time their efficiency. Thanks to the high absorbing characteristics that they can achieve, their usage is of particularly interest as material of the core in sandwich panels of aerospace structures to reduce vibrations and noise inside passengers aircraft’s cabin. In addition, since the low frequency signals are difficult to be damped with conventional materials, their usage can guarantee a high transmission loss at low frequencies, obtaining a positive benefit on passengers’ comfort. The performances and efficiency of these materials are enhanced thanks to the new additive manufacturing techniques opposed to the conventional ones uncapable to pro- duce such complex internal geometries. The aim of this work is to study, produce and redesign micro-perforated sandwich panels of a literature case study to achieve high performances in the low frequency range, e.g., below 2000 Hz. Some geometrical parameters, such as perforation ratio and diameter of holes, were considered to realize different models and see the differences in the sound transmission loss. The models were produced by means of Fused Deposition Modelling using an Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS Plus p430) material on a commercial additive manufacturing system. Finally, the frequency response analysis was carried out with Mul2 software, based on the Carrera’s Unified Formulation (CUF) to understand the acoustic and structural properties of the material employed, analyzing the plates’ displacements and the TL results.
