Acoustic Control in Brief
Noise absorption refers to the process by which a material, structure, or object takes in sound energy when sound waves are encountered, as opposed to reflecting the energy.
When sound in a room collides with the walls, part of the sound’s energy is reflected and part is absorbed into the walls. Soundproofing aims to absorb as much sound energy as possible.
In general, soft, porous materials serve as good acoustic insulators, whereas hard, impenetrable materials reflect most.
Airborne sound or noise travels through walls or floor and ceiling assemblies and can emanate from either human activities in adjacent living spaces or from mechanical noise within the building.
Fabric covered panels are an excellent way to maximise the acoustical absorption. Fabric can be wrapped around substrates to create what is referred to as a “pre-fabricated panel”. Such fabrics are generally acoustically ‘transparent, meaning that they do not impede a sound wave.
The Noise Reduction Coefficient (commonly abbreviated NRC) is a scalar representation of the amount of sound energy absorbed upon striking a particular surface.
An NRC of 0 indicates perfect reflection; an NRC of 1 indicates perfect absorption.
Relative humidity (abbreviated RH) is the ratio of the partial pressure of water vapour to the equilibrium vapour pressure of water at the same temperature.
Relative humidity depends on temperature and the pressure of the system of interest.
