Corrugation of a corrugated panel dramatically increases the bending stiffness per weight. However, corrugated panels show lower sound insulation performance than that of the flat plate having the same weight. Especially, in a particular frequency region, the sound transmission loss significantly decreases. Main reason of the problem is known as the local resonance. A number of local resonance modes occur above a certain frequency band and modal density rapidly increases. In this study, we investigate the relation of the sound transmission loss and the modal density. Finally, we propose a design methodology in terms of the modal density to improve the sound insulation performance of the corrugated panels without weight increase.
