Effects of Nano-Porous Materials and Inert Gas on Sound Proof Properties of Double Layer Acryl Plate
The purpose of this study was to investigate the sound proof properties of the double layer acryl plates with various packing materials inside. The acryl plates were filled with vacuum pressure ranged from-20 to-80 kPa, fumed silica as nanoporous materials, and HCFC (hydrochloro-fluorocarbon) as inert gas. The sound pressure level passed though panels was measured to compare soundproof performance. All other panel showed better performance from 500-1000 Hz than air layer panel. For the vacuum layer panel, panel with-80 kPa showed the best performance among other vacuum layer panel throughout all range of frequency. It is found that the more nanomaterial filled in panel, the lower sound proof performance. When it comes to panel filled with inert gas, the sound proof performance improved when it has greater pressure of gas.
