عنوان مقاله [English]
With the development of urbanism and the airports, construction of highways around cities, noise pollution caused by the traffic of vehicles, landing and take off the airplane has become one of the most harmful effects on the habitants around the highways and urban areas. In order to prevent these damaging effects, or in other words, for reducing the transmission of the noises from streets to the residential buildings, it can be used from sound absorbing material around the highways. A number of 4 mixture designs have been investigated in this study in order to reduce sound transmission through concrete, including control sample and 3mixture designs of recycled rubber with sizes of 1–3 mm. The rubber has been used as a replacement of 5,10, and 15 percent of sand. First, 7,14 and 28-day strengths of concrete have been measured and then, sound transmission losses through the samples have been measured at the range of 63–6300 Hz by using impedance tube of the transfer function. The results indicate a reduction in the transmission of sound in samples containing rubber at high frequency ranges, which, given the reduction of environmental losses, makes use of this type of concrete in airports and freeways.
