Definition of a baffled plate in the context of sound radiation

  1. Oct 9, 2011 #1
    Hi everyone, I've been reading quite a few papers on the study of sound radiation, and a common system that is studied is described as a "baffled plate". What exactly are the boundary conditions on a baffled plate? I thought it was simply that the edges have a pinned boundary condition, i.e. there can be no displacement but they can have slope. However in some papers it seems to mean a clamped boundary condition. I cannot find a definition anywhere. Could anyone give me a definitive answer please? Thanks
