Acoustical Properties of Honeycomb Fabric with Advance Material Micro- Plates
This paper presents the results of experiment carried out with customized fabric design using advanced materials, to determine the significant amount of sound waves absorbed and compare it to the acoustic fabrics available in the market. The designed fabric absorbs the sound waves through a porous layer having honeycomb pattern that converts sound energy into thermal energy. The advanced fabric material diffuses the reflected sound waves within the micro-plate`s structure layer, yet the minimum amount of waves penetrates through the fabric as compare to the other acoustic fabrics. The experimental results showed 20-23 dB insulation value with the advanced material used.
