Abstract

In the last decades, coiled-up resonators have become popular within the metamaterial research community for narrow band, low frequency resonances combined to subwavelength thickness. Such structures are particularly suited to one of the most widespread manufacturing processes, i.e. PET-based 3D printing. Acoustic performance of coiled-up resonators depends on the geometrical parameters’ variation, which is influenced by thermo-hygrometric conditions; however, the deformation itself needs to be further investigated. For this reason, the present paper evaluates the correlation between temperature, relative humidity, and the geometrical parameters’ (spiral length and hole diameter) deformations and, consequently, the acoustic performance of a 3D printed coiled-up resonator. A combined approach through analytical, numerical, and experimental measurements quantified the coefficient increasing the temperature (T = 10 – 50 °C) , and the relative humidity (RH = 20 – 50 – 80 %) of the samples. Relative humidity variations turned neglectable discrepancies on sound absorption’s peaks. On the other hand, the increase in temperature caused a frequency peaks’ shift following an exponential trend. This study can be a starting point for practical applications when the thermos-hygrometric variations are of concern.
