1pMU4: Reproducing tonguing strategies in single-reed woodwinds using an artificial blowing machine
The interest of the current study is to mimic these tonguing techniques using an artificial setup, where the vibration of the reed and the motion of the tongue can be observed.
2pBA2 – Double, Double, Toil and Trouble: Nitric Oxide or Xenon Bubble
Designer bubbles loaded with special gases are under development at the University of Cincinnati Image-guided Ultrasound Therapeutics Laboratories to treat heart disease and stroke.
4aAB1 – The best available science? Are NOAA Fisheries marine mammal exposure noise guidelines up to date?
NOAA Fisheries employs a set of in-water noise exposure guidelines that establish regulatory thresholds for ocean actions that impact marine mammals.
4aBAa7 – Unprecedented high-spatial resolution was achieved in ultrasound imaging by breaking the fundamental limitation with the operating ultrasound wavelength
microscopy super resolution imaging technology is based on randomly repeated blinking process of the fluorophores in response to the light source of the microscopy.
1aPP – The Role of Talker/Vowel Change in Consonant Recognition with Hearing Loss
Researchers designed a speech-based test that may be utilized by audiologists to determine susceptible speech phones for each individual with hearing loss.
2pAB16 – Biomimetic sonar and the problem of finding objects in foliage
Researchers have designed a sonar which mimics the biosonar of the horseshoe bat
1pNS1 – Acoustic vehicle alerts and sleep disruption: A content analysis of online discussion forums
The study uses a database that was compiled as part of a noise activism endeavor called the Silence the Horns project.
1pBA11 – An ultrasound surface wave elastography technique for noninvasive measurement of scar tissue
Researchers aim to assess the role of ultrasound surface wave elastography (USWE) in accurately evaluating scar metrics.
5aAB4 – How far away can an insect as tiny as a female mosquito hear the males in a mating swarm?
Mosquitoes hear with their two hairy antennae, which vibrate when stimulated by the sound-wave created by another mosquito flying nearby.
2aSPa8 and 4aSP6 – Safe and Sound – Using acoustics to improve the safety of autonomous vehicles
the manner in which Autonomous Vehicles can use acoustic cues to supplement their decision-making process is an area that needs development.
4pSC15 – Reading aloud in a clear speaking style may interfere with sentence recognition memory
Compared to more casual speech, clear speech enhances a listener’s ability to understand speech in a noisy environment.
4aSP4 – Streaming Video through Biological Tissues using Ultrasonic Communication
Researchers have developed a fast, wireless ultrasonic communication alternative that also has biomedical implications.
4aPA – Using Sound Waves to Quantify Erupted Volumes and Directionality of Volcanic Explosions
Yasur is easily accessible and has explosions every 1 to 4 minutes making it a great place to study volcanic explosion mechanisms.
4APP28 – Listening to music with bionic ears: Identification of musical instruments and genres by cochlear implant listeners
Although CIs have been highly effective in improving speech perception for people with severe to profound hearing loss, music perception has remained difficult and frustrating cochlear implant users
1aSP1 – From Paper Cranes to New Tech Gains: Frequency Tuning through Origami Folding
Origami, as it turns out, is also useful in controlling how sound and radio waves travel.
1aSAb4 – Seismic isolation in Advanced Virgo gravitational wave detector
Researchers present an overview of the seismic isolation systems used in Advanced Virgo Gravitational Wave interferometer.
1pNS2 – Soundscape, traffic safety, and requirements for public health
Soundscape is a construct of human perception that must be understood as a relationship between human beings, acoustic environments, and society.
2aAB1 – Most animals hear acoustic flow instead of pressure; we should too
The researcher explores technologies for achieving precise detection of sound using a mechanical structure that is driven by viscous forces associated with the fluctuating velocity of the medium.
1aBAb2 – In saline flooded Lung exists superior acoustic conditions for treatment of lung cancer using therapeutic ultrasound
Researchers aim to combine One Lung Filling and therapeutic ultrasound where the cancerous lung is flooded while the contralateral side maintains ventilated.
1pBA4 – Dedicated signal processing for lung ultrasound imaging: Can we see what we hear?
The examination of the lung is in fact performed with ultrasound equipment conceptually unsuitable to this task.
