Abstract


Among the world's greatest threats is noise pollution particularly in megacities that affect the quality of life. This problem can cause negative effects on human health, disturbing emotion as well as human behavior. Natural fiber sound insulation materials have been demonstrated to be a potential substitute for the synthetic products currently employed in the sound insulation industry. Coconut fiber and sugarcane fiber happen to be biodegradable, earth-friendly, and present lower risks to the environment and human health. The research examines the sound absorption characteristics of natural biodegradable waste fibers (coconut fiber & sugarcane fiber) to evaluate their suitability as sound absorbers. The paper seeks to discover the internal workings of the sound absorption mechanisms of these materials and also to help design environmentally friendly acoustic solutions.

Keywords:
