Locally resonant metamaterials have recently emerged and gained attention in the field of noise control engineering. The addition of resonant structures to a flexible partition on a sub-wavelength scale enables a targeted frequency range of strongly reduced vibration and sound transmission. These structures have been widely studied and are typically analyzed using infinite periodic structure theory. The implications of nonsub-wavelength resonator spacing on the sound transmission loss of metamaterial partitions as well as on the representativeness of the infinite periodic structure modeling are, however, less well known. In this technical brief, it is shown that, although a shifted sound transmission loss peak can be predicted for partitions with nonsub-wavelength resonator spacing when using infinite periodic structure modeling, the sound transmission loss enhancement is not guaranteed for their finite structure counterparts.
