Sound Absorption Properties of DFs/EVA Composites
AbstractUsing discarded feather fibers (DFs) and ethylene vinyl acetate (EVA) copolymer, the DFs/EVA composites with good sound absorption performance were prepared by hot-pressing method. The effects of hot-pressing temperature, mass fraction of DFs, density and thickness of composites on the sound absorption properties were studied by the controlling variable method. The sound absorption properties of the composites were studied by the transfer function method, and under the optimized technological conditions, the sound absorption coefficient of the composites was above 0.9 and the sound absorption band was wide. According to the box counting method based on the fractal theory, the fractal dimension of DFs/EVA sound absorption composites was calculated through Matlab programming, and the relationship between the fractal dimension and the mass fraction of DFs, the volume density of the composites were analyzed, then the quantitative relationship between the fractal dimension and the maximum sound absorption coefficient was deduced, which played a major role in the sound absorption design of porous sound absorption materials.
