EN Cavity-based metamaterials are usually designed for sound absorbing or sound scattering properties. They are built of combinations of ducts and slits, which in the case of acoustic absorbers are designed to maximize the sound absorption at resonance frequencies through the appearance of the viscothermal losses. The unit cells are designed under the assumption of perfectly rigid walls, shared by all the analytical models. Sound absorbing properties of the structures result from viscothermal losses in small ducts. The paper discusses the influence of adding sound absorption to the walls in the numerical model on the results of the observed sound absorption coefficient. It is demonstrated that the resulting sound absorption of the structure varies with changing sound absorption coefficient of the walls of the structure. The same observations are made for 3D-printed measurement samples, showing the importance of including the sound absorption of the walls in the modelling process.
