AbstractWe have developed a research project on the use of scrap tyres as absorbers in acoustic noise barriers for highways. This project is based on the aims for the period 2000-2006 of the Scrap Tyres Working Group of the EU concerning the discovery of new uses and tyre processing technologies to reduce the percentage of waste tyre crumbs and thus minimise the environmental pollution produced by this type of waste.
Besides reducing the noise in neighbouring residential areas, such a barrier would also act as an elastic wall for crashes. The paper describes the theoretical basis (under the phenomenological behaviour of the material) of the acoustic absorption process inside the granular material. Experimental results are given, followed by the optimisation of the shape and dimensions of an acoustic wall, in order to achieve the maximum absorption compatible with a controlled volume of consumed rubber crumb.
