Medium with gradient change of acoustic impedance is a new type acoustic structure. It is composed of several materials and has a continuous gradient composition and structure whose specific acoustic impedance varies smoothly across the layer. It has been used in various practical situations such as acoustic rectifiers, medical devices, weakening vibration and reducing noise. The purpose of this paper is to investigate the effect of boundary impedance mismatch on acoustic characteristics of gradient impedance media. The propagation mechanism of acoustic waves in medium with gradient change of specific acoustic impedance was calculated by transfer matrix method. By setting the different ratios of the acoustic impedance at interfaces of matching layer, the relationship between specific acoustic impedance mismatch and acoustic characteristics are derived and the corresponding conclusions are drawn. These conclusions provide an idea for the preparation of relevant medium.
