This paper investigates the rotational effect of mechanical links on energy transmission of a double-wall structure with an enclosure. A criterion is proposed to identify energy transmission mechanisms and predict the dominant transmitting path. Studies in different frequency ranges show a more significant energy transmission due to the rotational effect of the link at higher frequencies compared with lower ones. Comparison between the translational effect and the rotational effect on energy transmission shows that although both effects are important for the transmission mechanism analysis, the rotational effect on energy transmission is more remarkable at high frequencies for a soft translational link; whereas is insensitive for a stiff one.
