The vibroacoustic study of the interaction of sound with a point-constrained, simply-supported square plate is considered in this paper. The plate is mounted flush on one of the walls of an infinite duct of rectangular cross section and is backed by a cavity. The plate response and the acoustic field is predicted by solving the coupled governing equations using modal expansion with the relevant eigenmodes of the plate dynamics and acoustic fields in the duct and cavity. By varying the location of the point constraint, the frequency characteristics of the transmission loss in the duct can be tuned. The point constraint can also alter the amplitude and spectral characteristics of the plate's response. Interestingly, some new peaks are observed in the response because of the excitation of unsymmetric modes which are otherwise dormant. Mode-localization phenomenon, which is the localization of vibration in specific regions of the plate, is observed for selected constrained points. © 2018 Elsevier Ltd
