Structure and Sound Absorption Properties of Spiral Vane Electrospun PVA/PEO Nanofiber Membranes
AbstractNoise pollution has become one of the four major pollution issues in the world and has drawn much attention recently. Controlling the sound source and using sound-absorbing materials reasonably is considered an effective way to reduce noise. Due to the high porosity and specific surface area, nanofibers membrane is widely used in the field of the sound absorption. Polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) and Polyethylene oxide (PEO) are both water-soluble polymers with good film-forming properties that can be mixed in any proportion. In this paper, nanofiber membranes were prepared by spiral vane electrospinning with different contents of PVA and PEO. The nanofibers membranes were characterized by Fourier Transform-Infrared (FT-IR), X-ray diffraction (XRD), 3D-M, and scanning electron microscopy (SEM). The sound absorption property of nanofibers membranes and the compositions (nanofiber membranes and needle punched non-woven fabric) were tested with an impedance tube. The results demonstrate that the addition of PEO changed the morphological characteristics and construct of PVA, sound absorption properties had undergone great changes. View Full-Text
