Airflow resistivity is one of the most important parameters in the study of the physical properties of porous acoustic materials. This parameter is fundamental for the correct evaluation of sound absorption of acoustic materials and is needed in all the theoretical models.In the present work, airflow resistivity of porous materials is determined under effective operating conditions inside a vehicle (temperature, compression of the panels). Starting from the discussion on the measurement uncertainty, experimental data of airflow resistivity, measured as a function of temperature and applied static loads, are presented. By introducing the measured values in a SEA model of a typical vehicle panel, the foreseen values of acoustic absorption due to variation of temperature and static load are determined and presented.
