Abstract

In this study, we have scrutinized the frequency gap generation by changing the geometrical parameters of a one-dimensional phononic crystal. For this purpose, we have calculated the transmission coefficient of an incident acoustic wave by using the transfer matrix method. We have retained and fixed the total length of the system and changed the system internal geometry not to increase the system length too much. Another reason was to adjust the phononic band gaps and get the desired transmission properties by finding the optimum internal geometry without increasing or decreasing the total length of phononic crystals. In addition, we also propose few structures with the opportunity of applications in acoustical devices such as sonic reflectors. Our results can also be of high interest to design acoustic filters in the case that transmission of certain frequencies is necessary.
