of homogenization based on the scattering properties of the cluster. Exact formulas for the effective parameters i.e., effective sound speed and effective density are obtained as a function of the location of each cylinder and the physical parameters density and speed of sound of cylinders and the embedded medium. Results for several fluid-fluid composite systems are reported. The case of rigid infinite density cylinders in air is deeply analyzed, showing results for ordered and disordered… Expand
