B Sound absorption coefficients differing with frequency

  1. May 8, 2017 #1

    Hi there, my understanding of absorption coefficients is that harder materials generally reflect more sound similarly to how a harder material will result a ball to bounce higher than a softer material. What I am having trouble finding research on and understanding is the reasoning behind the absorption coefficients of certain materials differing with the frequency of the sound wave.
    -Thank you in advance :)

    Thanks for the thread! This is an automated courtesy bump. Sorry you aren't generating responses at the moment. Do you have any further information, come to any new conclusions or is it possible to reword the post? The more details the better.
