Article Preview

This research focuses on the simulation of sound absorption coefficient of banana fiber and experimentation of sound absorption coefficient of banana fiber epoxy composites. For simulation, ‘Mechel’ empirical model was used to manipulate the flow resistivity and ‘Delany and Bazley’ empirical model was used to develop the prediction of sound absorption coefficient at frequency ranges from 500 Hz to 6000 Hz. For experimentation, two-microphone transfer function impedance tube model was used to analyze the sound absorption coefficient at frequency ranges from 500 Hz to 6000 Hz. Based on simulation, it is predicted and analyzed that the sound absorption coefficient of banana fiber found to be as high as 0.97 for the effects on the material thickness of banana fiber and 0.64 for the effects on the fiber diameter size and flow resistivity of banana fiber in the frequency ranges from 500 Hz to 6000 Hz. According to experimental results, it is observed and analyzed that the sound absorption coefficient of banana epoxy composites found to be as high as 0.11 for untreated banana epoxy composites and 0.12 for treated banana epoxy composites in the frequency ranges from 500 Hz to 6000 Hz.
