Main Article Content
In a foamed panel, the sound absorption is influenced by several design parameters related mostly to acoustic features. This study has gathered the combined effects of thermo-acoustical parameters on sound absorption in aluminum foam panels. These parameters include pore size, porosity, relative density, flow resistivity, frequency, air temperature and pressure. The sound absorption coefficient has been calculated theoretically based on a reliable approach. The results have shown high absorption values for the aluminium foam (Al-foam) because of its low relative density. The values ranged from 0.75 for a relatively high-density panel and small pore size to 0.87 for a relatively low-density and medium pore-size board.
Furthermore, the absorption values have decreased by increasing the temperature and pressure. The air temperature increase by 25 ºC reduced the absorption by 2-4% at constant pressure. Specifically, the values of sound absorption coefficient at 10 bar and 100 ºC were less by 10-15% compared to that obtained at standard atmospheric conditions.
Journal author rights
In order for Romanian Journal of Acoustics and Vibration to publish and disseminate research articles, we need publishing rights. This is determined by a publishing agreement between the author and Romanian Journal of Acoustics and Vibration. This agreement deals with the transfer or license of the copyright to Romanian Journal of Acoustics and Vibration and authors retain significant rights to use and share their own published articles. Romanian Journal of Acoustics and Vibration supports the need for authors to share, disseminate and maximize the impact of their research and these rights, in Romanian Journal of Acoustics and Vibration proprietary are defined below:
For subscription articles:
Authors transfer copyright to the publisher as part of a journal publishing agreement, but have the right to: Share their article for personal use (manuscript version); retain patent, trademark and other intellectual property rights (including research data); proper attribution and credit for the published work.
For open access articles:
Authors sign an exclusive license agreement, where authors have copyright but license exclusive rights in their article to the publisher. In this case authors have the right to: share their article in the same ways permitted to third parties under the relevant user license; retain patent, trademark and other intellectual property rights (including research data); proper attribution and credit for the published work.
Rights granted to Romanian Journal of Acoustics and Vibration
For both subscription and open access articles, published in proprietary titles, Romanian Journal of Acoustics and Vibration is granted the following rights:
- The exclusive right to publish and distribute an article, and to grant rights to others, including for commercial purposes;
- For open access articles, Romanian Journal of Acoustics and Vibration will apply the relevant third party user licence (Open access licencses) where Romanian Journal of Acoustics and Vibration publishes the article on its online platforms;
- The right to provide the article in all forms and media so the article can be used on the latest technology even after publication;
- The authority to enforce the rights in the article, on behalf of an author, against third parties, for example in the case of plagiarism or copyright infringement.
