Abstract

Grounded element, sawdust, local plaster mud and sand were mixed in various contributions by weight and their sound absorbing properties were studied and analyzed.Their absorbing properties were compared with that of panel absorbers.Results show that, these local samples give results similar to that of panel absorbers

Keywords: Sound, sawdust, absorbing, properties, sand, mud, cement
