In this paper an innovative concrete and inert mixture is proposed to assemble building partition walls. Mixture is made for no-structural light concrete by aggregating concrete with natural and artificial inerts. Pumice, lapillus and rubber are employed as inerts. A measurement campaign was carried out to evaluate the materials acoustic properties for different samples composition. Experimental tests were realized by an impedance tube: transmission loss was evaluated by a four microphone transfer function method, based on ISO 10534-2. Test results are here reported. Measurements results allows to determine the optimum mixture in term of acoustic properties.

Abstract

In this paper an innovative concrete and inert mixture is proposed to assemble building partition walls. Mixture is made for no-structural light concrete by aggregating concrete with natural and artificial inerts. Pumice, lapillus and rubber are employed as inerts. A measurement campaign was carried out to evaluate the materials acoustic properties for different samples composition. Experimental tests were realized by an impedance tube: transmission loss was evaluated by a four microphone transfer function method, based on ISO 10534-2. Test results are here reported. Measurements results allows to determine the optimum mixture in term of acoustic properties.
