This work presents benchmark examples related to the modelling of sound absorbing porous media with rigid frame based on the periodic geometry of their microstructures. To this end, rigorous mathematical derivations are recalled to provide all necessary equations, useful relations, and formulae for the so-called direct multi-scale computations, as well as for the hybrid multi-scale calculations based on the numerically determined transport parameters of porous materials. The results of such direct and hybrid multi-scale calculations are not only cross verified, but also confirmed by direct numerical simulations based on the linearised Navier-Stokes-Fourier equations. In addition, relevant theoretical and numerical issues are discussed, and some practical hints are given.

This work presents a three-scale approach to modelling sound absorbing structures with non-uniform porosity, consisting of meso-patterns of localised micro-porosity. It can also be used for structures in which voids in a solid frame are filled with micro-fibres. The method involves double-scale, i.e. micro- and meso-scale, calculations of the effective properties of an equivalent homogenised medium, as well as macro-scale calculations of sound propagation and absorption in this medium, which at the macroscopic level can replace the entire absorbing structure of complex micro-geometry. The basic idea can be explained as follows: the mesoscale areas with localised micro-porosity are treated as homogenised meso-pores saturated with an equivalent visco-thermal fluid replacing the actual gas-saturated micro-porous medium, so that the macroscopic effective properties are finally calculated based on a simplified meso-scale geometry with homogenised mesopores.
