Lay Language Papers
2pSP6 – Directive and focused acoustic wave radiation by tessellated transducers with folded curvatures
Researchers investigate a new form of adaptive acoustic energy delivery from foldable arrays by studying tessellated transducers that adopt folded curvatures
1pAAa6 – Soundscape of washroom equipment
how good is your washroom wall, door and window at reducing the toilet flush sound while you are sleeping, working or studying?
3aMU5 – How stones make musical sounds?
Korean stone chimes, called pyeongyeongs, provide another example of tuning sound by change geometrical shape of bars.
2aNSa1 – Tranquillity Trails in the city?
Tranquillity Trails are walking routes designed to enable residents and visitors to reflect and recover from stress while receiving the benefits of healthy exercise.
1aID1 – Machine learning allows automatic recognition of everyday sounds
Automatic detection of sounds is difficult, since the acoustic characteristics of different sources can be very similar, and there is no single, specific acoustic property that could be utilised for recognition
2pSC7 – Seeing is Treating: The Opti-Speech Clinical Trial at CHSC
Opti-Speech is a technology that provides visualization in the speech therapy room.
1pSC12 – Is it blow or below? How well can second-language learners distinguish between words that differ in syllable count?
Languages vary not only in the vowels and consonants that are used, but also in how the vowels and consonants combine to form syllables and words.
1aAAa2 – Can humans use echolocation to hear the difference between different kinds of walls?
Can we “hear objects”, or correctly said, sound reflections from objects? In other words, can we “echolocate”?
How Can MRI Contribute to Cleft Palate Care?
With the support of a team of experts in cleft palate and bioimaging, we described a method for obtaining dynamic magnetic resonance images (MRI) of children during speech.
2pAO6 – Ocean tides are conductors of underwater icy concerts
For consolidated ice cover, the highest noise levels occurred suddenly at low water, when underwater rocks are crushing the ice
2pAAb1 – The acoustics of rooms for music rehearsal and performance: The Norwegian approach
The Norwegian Council for Music Organizations has completed more than 600 acoustical room measurement reports on rooms used for rehearsal and concerts.
2aAB3 – A Loud, Ultrasonic Party
In order to investigate how these bats change calls while flying in groups, researchers developed a new method
3pAB5 – How Canaries Listen to Their Song
Researchers explored how canaries in a non-breeding state listen to their song by testing their auditory perception
My personal head related transfer function
The innovation of our research is in the development of a methodology constructing individual 3D computer models (CAD) of heads and ears, including the outer part of the ear, called the pinna.
S&N-S Light: the system that makes the noise light
Researchers developed Speech & Noise-Stop Light, S&N-S Light, a patented, smart sound level meter device with a warning light triggered by exceeding a predetermined anthropic sound level difference
2pAO10 – What Can We Learn from Breaking Wave Noise?
breaking waves are the product of storms at sea, they are a source of intense turbulence and they can destroy the sensitive instruments we might use to measure them.
4aSAb12 – Designing Tunable Acoustic Metamaterials Using 3-D Computer Graphics
The ability to tune metallic foam properties for various noise and vibration mitigation applications is a valuable tool for industrial designers and engineers.
Effects of noise for workers in the transportation industry
For pilots and bus, truck and train drivers, the noise levels in the area they are working can be 65 to more than 75 dBA at times.
3pAB1 – A Welcoming Whinny
When doing research on horse whinnys researchers realized they were hearing more whinnys when horses were inside the barn than out.
2pSAa – Three-in-one Sound Effects: A redirecting antenna, beam splitter and a sonar
is it possible, we wondered, to break down a complex acoustic compound into its constituents and separate one of those pure tones from the rest?
2aAAc3 – Vocal Effort, Load and Fatigue in Virtual Acoustics
the study was designed to better understand how self-reported vocal fatigue is related to objective voice parameters like voice intensity, pitch, and their fluctuation, as well as the duration of the vocal load.
2aBAa7 – Stimulating the brain with ultrasound: treatment planning
Researchers performed a numerical study to assess whether single-element transducers could be used in combination with numerical modelling to achieve sufficient targeting in the brain.
1aAAc3 – Can a Classroom “Sound Good” to Enhance Speech Intelligibility for Children?
a classroom should also “sound” appropriate, since the teacher-to-student communication process is at the base of learning.
How Important are Fish Sounds for Feeding, Contests, and Reproduction?
Our knowledge of what influence fish sounds have on reproduction and survival lags considerably behind that for terrestrial animals.
