The insertion of Acoustic Black Holes (ABH) in a flat panel or in a beam termination is an innovative technique for controlling passively structural vibration damping without added mass. ABH consists in local variations of the stiffness (made with thickness variations) and the local damping (made with a thin visco-elastic layer) and are known as efficient absorbers for flexural waves above its cut-on frequency. The goal of the paper is to identify and to push the current limitations of this existing strategy by developing "enhanced acoustic black holes" absorbers for which the control of the damping properties is sought by different possible techniques including thermal variations.The capability of such techniques to enhance the control of the flexural rigidity and the local damping is investigated numerically. The reflection coefficients of several architectures of ABH beam termination are computed using the impedance matrix method. Such a method is adapted to the accurate computation of the reflection coefficient of a structural wave guide with varying properties. Comparing the reflection coefficients of several architectures allows us to discuss the potentialities of such enhanced Acoustic Black Holes.
