Optimal design of compressed porous materials for acoustic sealing applications by means of smart data analysis



In industry segments such as automotive and industrial equipment the use of compressed porous materials is well known to improve the global acoustic performance of the complete system. Such porous materials should be designed in a specific way in order to reach a significant acoustic sealing performance at different compression rates.

Unfortunately, there are no standard measurement procedures nor predefined material characteristics that allow the selection of the right material with the optimal acoustic performance.

The main goal of this research is to link acoustic performance of compressed porous materials with intrinsic material characteristics using statistical techniques.
