ABSTRACT
The aim of this paper is to present possibilities of using a new type of granular media in acoustics as innovative sound absorbers. Most materials of this type have a porous or fibrous structure. It is constant, and once manufactured, does not easily change its configuration. The examined material – Vacuum Packed Particles (VPP) is of a changeable structure. It can be assumed that the acoustical absorption of such structures can be modified and partially adjusted by an external factor. First steps in an experimental approach have been made – the acquired results are optimistic. Additional tests are being planned to confirm the observed phenomenon and to apply VPP as novel materials in acoustics. Basing on the preliminary experimental tests, it can be concluded that the considered structures could become a significant part of a multilayered structure which would have controllable sound absorption properties.
