|Title:||SOUND ABSORPTION OF TROPICAL WOODS AND THEIR RADIATION-INDUCED COMPOSITES.||Authors:||Chia, L.H.L.
|Issue Date:||1988||Citation:||Chia, L.H.L.,Teoh, S.H.,Tharmarathan, K.,Tan, L.C. (1988). SOUND ABSORPTION OF TROPICAL WOODS AND THEIR RADIATION-INDUCED COMPOSITES.. Radiation Physics and Chemistry 32 (5) : 677-682. ScholarBank@NUS Repository.||Abstract:||This is a preliminary study on the sound absorption properties of two tropical hardwoods, Light Red Meranti and Ramin, and their wood-polymer composites. Sound absorption is measured using a standing wave apparat s. The samples are of one thickness (7 mm) and cut longitudinally. Wood-polymer composites are made by impregnating the samples with methyl methacrylate which is polymerized in situ through gamma -irradiation. Both woods and their composites are better sound absorbers at higher sound frequencies. With partial impregnation, the absorption coefficients are improved upon particularly in the region between 1-3 kHz.||Source Title:||Radiation Physics and Chemistry||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/51727||ISSN:||0969806X|
