Investigation of Sound Absorption Feature of Closed-Cell Aluminum Foams Combined with Porous Materials
In order to improve closed-cell aluminum foam (CCAF) unimodal absorption, and to solve the problem of narrow frequency absorption band, the perforated CCAF boards were combined with porous materials to form a composite structure. The standing-wave-tube sound absorption tester was used to measure the sound absorption coefficient (SAC). The sound absorption coefficient peak value (SACPV), half-peak width (HPW), noise reduction coefficient (NRC), and absorption-peak centre frequency (APCF) were measured to characterize sound absorption properties for CCAF. The results showed that SAC was improved up to 0.98 by covering a soft sound-absorbing cloth on the surface of the perforated CCAF sample. In addition, the main sound absorption frequency band broadened. The addition of glass wool with different thickness is conductive to the low-frequency SAC of perforated CCAF.
