Abstract

Approximate expressions are given for the characteristic impedance and propagation wavenumber for linear acoustic transmission through a gas enclosed in a rigid cylindrical duct. These expressions are most complicated in the transition zone where the thermoviscous boundary layers are on the order of the tube radius. The approximations are accurate to within 1% for all frequencies and tube diameters except within the transition zone where the approximations are accurate to within 10%. A simple modification of the transmission line parameters is presented for the case where the tube walls are nonisothermal.
