The sound power transmission loss across duct constrictions with linearly tapered sections is studied with the finite element method. Results show that the acoustic energy distributions of transmitted waves at high frequency depend critically on the exit configuration of the constriction. The corresponding strengths of these waves are very much affected by the entrance setup of the constriction. The difference between inlet and outlet impedance of a constriction leads to weaker resonant sound transmission.
