Abstract
The noise affects to working quality at the same degree as those to workforce and people health, therefore,
appropriate noise control is indispensable. This study is aimed at evaluating of rockwool (5cm) absorption
coefficient and analyzing its effectivity on noise control. The room for simulation is equipped with known noise
source. In this case a sound system instrument and portable fire pump were used. The tested noise frequencies
were in the range of human hearing threshold for which an equalizer instrument was used to identify the sound
frequencies.
Based on this study, the rockwool absorption coefficients were 0.8, 0.96, 0.98, 0.82 for sound frequency of 500
Hz, 1000 Hz, 2000 Hz and 4000 Hz respectively. By installing the rockwool on 37.97% of room area of 72 m2,
this rockwool was able to reduce the noise intensity by 10.16 dBA, 10.75 dBA, 10.5 dBA, 9.58 dBA, 9.25 dBA for
frequency of 500 Hz, 1000 Hz, 2000 Hz, 4000 Hz and multiple frequencies respectively.
The rockwool is an effective sound absorber in noise control owing to have high absorption coefficient (almost
unity) and ease for installment.
Keywords: noisy, sound frequency, absorption coefficient, portable fire pump, rock wool
