The polyurethane foam with different structure was prepared by one-step foaming process, and the acoustic properties of the foam were measured by impedance tube, using sound absorption coefficient as the measure index, the effects of manufacturing temperature, ratio of polyols to MDI and total mass (density) on the acoustic properties of polyurethane were analyzed by experimental optimization design. The test results show that the ratio of polyols to MDI is the most important factor affecting the sound absorption coefficient, and the effect of total mass and manufacturing temperature take the second place, the quadratic order of temperature has a major impact on the average acoustic absorptivity of polyurethane.

Abstract Rigid polymer foams exhibit excellent mechanical properties for the use in impact and crash components of lightweight structures, such as core layer of sandwich-structures. The design of these lightweight structures strongly depends on secured knowledge of the stress-strain response at various strain rates. For the purpose of predicting the strain rate dependent behaviour under compression loading, an analytical model based on a Burgers model was developed and validated with comprehensi...

The effect of filler type and mass percentage on the properties of low-density rigid polyurethane foams at a temperature of 77K was investigated. The mechanical properties of foams of density 55-90 kg/m3 filled with milled carbon fibers of average length of 100 and 60 μm and hollow glass microspheres of average diameter of 65 μm were compared. A considerable increase in the compressive elastic modulus in the foam rise direction with increasing filler content was observed. The compression strengt...

A novel porous laminated composite material (PLCM), made of polymer, metal, and polymer fibers with low melting point, is developed. Manufactured by the premix, lamination, preheating, and molded tech niques, the proposed PLCM exhibits very high sound absorption coefficient in the frequency range of 500 to 2000 Hz with a relatively thin and light structure. Using a porous rigid body, a mathematical model, charac terized by five macroscopic parameters—fibrous diameter, fibrous density, cross sect...

Porous materials, like plastic foams, are widely used for sound absorbing purposes. This paper deals with the mechanical behaviour of polyurethane foams' skeleton. The complex elastic constants of open cell foams are measured at low frequency (from 1 Hz to 100 Hz). Quasi-static experimental configuration and numerical inversion method are presented. In the case of isotropic foams, measurements of the complex Young's modulus and Poisson's ratio are set out. Results can be directly used to predict...

A novel process is described for making integral multilayered polymers with the layers separated by discontinuous narrow gaps containing air and/or a blowing agent. The two step process involves first introducing a low degree of entanglement among some of the polymer chains and then breaking apart these entanglements using a blowing agent to give the discontinuous gaps that resemble elongated, narrow cells. The layer density can be controlled within a wide range, typically 10 to 2000 layers/mm, ...
