This paper discusses the use of novel porous sound absorbent ceramic tiles as heat shields in combustion chambers with respect to their sound absorption. For this purpose, a theory describing the bulk properties of a homogeneous porous absorber layer was combined with a transfer matrix approach to account for the temperature gradient within the absorber. By means of a high temperature scenario, the maximum absorption performance and the required microscale properties of the absorber are presented.
