This paper studies the influence of hybrid disorders on acoustic transmission characteristic in pipeline with periodic elastic HRs. Band gap structures (BGs) for infinite period are investigated by transfer matrix method and finite element method respectively, and fit well with the corresponding transmission loss (TL) for finite regular periods. By introducing a certain degree of uncertainty level, Interval analysis method is used to convert uncertain parameter problems into two deterministic models. Frequency response function (FRF) for near-periodic structure with single disorder and BGs for quasi-periodic structure with multiple disorders considering cavity radius and periodic length are investigated. The existence of disorders in periodic structure would always reduce attenuation interval and intensity, some disturbance would even change the original acoustic transmission characteristic and excite completely new attenuation zones. The sensitivity of pipeline acoustic vibration transfer characteristic to disorder parameter depends on attenuation mechanism, as for periodic elastic HRs pipeline, acoustic propagation stability is more sensitive to characteristic of locally resonant unit. The work in this paper enriches the stability analysis of pipeline with elastic HRs, which would provide theoretical reference for noise and vibration reduction design in practical engineering applications.
