Abstract

The noise absorbing panels are made from both natural and artificial materials. Due to the increased manufacture and usage of artificial fibres, carbon footprint levels get increased. In the Coimbatore region with the presence of numerous coir industries, huge quantity of waste in the form of coir pith are produced. To overcome the use of artificial fibres, this study intends the usage of the coir waste as the noise absorbing material. A noise absorbing panel is designed and made from the coir with the addition of polypropylene. The polypropylene is used for binding purpose. The prepared sample is tested with the impedance tube method. The sound absorbing coefficient value of the sample which is compared with the other materials. For phase, I of the project, the properties of coir and the test which has to be carried out is studied with the help of literature reviews. The test procedure is discussed and the methodology is prepared. Further in phase II of the project experimental part is carried out. The results are tabulated and compared with artificial materials which are then concluded that coir can be used as an absorbing material.
