Abstract
Natural fibre based composites are under intensive study due to their eco friendly nature and peculiar properties. The advantage of natural fibres is their continuous supply, easy and safe handling, and biodegradable nature. Although natural fibres exhibit admirable physical and mechanical properties, it varies with the plant source, species, geography, and so forth. Pineapple leave fibre (PALF) is one of the abundantly available waste materials in India and has not been studied yet. The work has been carried out to experimental study on the application of Pineapple Leaf fiber reinforced Vinylester based hybrid composites in acoustic barrier. These results are compared with those of a similar set of glass fiber reinforced Vinylester based hybrid composites. It is evident that the values of Sound Pressure level (SPL) obtained in case of a Single cylinder 4S petrol engine, Vertical 4-S Diesel Engine and Air Compressor shows that the reduction in SPL can be achieved in its vicinity with maximum reduction at 1.5m from the source and a minimum reduction at 0.5m from the source for Pineapple leaf fiber (PALF) - Vinylester composites, thus after conducting the study we can say that the composites used can be recommended as a noise barrier also, and if the condition is erosion driven the composite material can sustain its property of reducing the Sound Pressure Level (SPL) dominantly and thus avoiding the sound levels.
