In this letter, the low and high frequency limits of the effective density characterizing a limp frame porous medium are investigated. These theoretical limits are compared to the ones found for a classical rigid frame porous medium, and to experimental measurements. While the high frequency asymptotic behaviors of both limp and rigid effective densities are usually only slightly different, their low frequency behaviors are significantly different. Compared to experimental measurements performed on a limp frame fibrous layer, only the limp frame effective density yields good correlations over the whole frequency range.
