Abstract: An experimental study of a new rolling-noise absorber is made in this study. Noise pressure levels measurements in different settings of the absorber are made. The results show high level of absorption. On the base of the analysis of the results, there are stated conclusions for its practical implementation. Also, the experimental data will be used in verification of the numerical investigations of noise-absorber models
