Abstract. The reduction of interior noise level in the transportation sector is a big problem to cope with in view to increase the comfort of passengers. For this reason a great emphasis from the research community is devoted to develop new technology which are able to satisfy the mechanical requirements with concrete benefits from the acoustic point of view. Currently, it does not exist a solution for wideband range of frequency. Indeed, porous materials are characterized by outstanding dissipation in the high frequency range but they exhibit poor performance in the low and medium frequency range, where instead resonant cavities systems have the best performances but with narrow-band sound absorption. For this reason, the design and development of new materials which offers a good acoustic absorption over a wide range of frequencies is requested. In this paper, a hybrid metamaterial is designed, by coupling resonant cavities with micro-porous material and obtained through additive manufacturing technique which enables to model complex geometries that could not be feasible with classical manufacturing. Numerical and experimental studies have been conducted on the manufactured samples of PLA, with an interesting focus on the effect of each parameter which affects the absorption properties.
