Abstract

An experimental study on the effect of panel density on the sound absorption properties of a date palm fiber panel has been presented in this paper. The experiments were carried out by using impedance tube at the Acoustic Lab, Faculty of Engineering and Built Environment, Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia. The date palm fiber was tested for densities of 77 kg/m3, 100 kg/m3 and 125 kg/m3.The results show that the values of absorption coefficient improve when increasing the density of the panel. Noise reduction coefficient (NRC) was computed to compare the performance of the palm date fiber samples for the different densities. The NRC increases by increasing the density.
