The triple leaf equations in a slightly more legible form are in Vinokur (attached) and Long Architectural Acoustics. Vinokur fig. 7 shows the similarity closely spaced panes.
Thanks again for yet another amazing resource!

How would one determine if the leafs are close enough together they act almost like a single mass, or far enough apart that the resonance is low enough that the 3 leaf situation isn't an issue?

In these cases, would you use the calcs for MAM or still use 3 leaf math, when adding the additional leaf?

Sorry if im muddying the thread.
