Lay Language Papers
170th Meeting of the Acoustical Society of America
October 2-6, 2015
A piano player can vary the loudness of notes individually, something that was not possible with the harpsichord or organ
The Opera House was built in 1952-1953 for around 2200 spectators and it followed a so-called style of “socialist realism”.
3aUW8 – A view askew: Bottlenose dolphins improve echolocation precision by aiming their sonar beam to graze the target
Prior studies on bottlenose dolphins assumed the animal pointed its beam directly at the target, but this assumption resulted in the conclusion that the animals shouldn’t be as “good” at echolocation as they actually are.
Researchers measured the energetic cost for both social sound and click production in dolphins and determined if these costs increased when the animals increased the loudness or other parameters of their sounds
the parasitic Ormia Ochracea fly is particularly adept at finding crickets by listening to their chirps, though the separation of their ears is much smaller than the wavelengths generated by the chirps.
2pAAa4 – Does it sound better behind Miles Davis’ back? What would it sound like face-to-face? Rushing through a holographic sound image of the trumpet
researchers built surrounding spheres of microphones that allow to record a holographic sound image of any musical instrument
This study presents experimental results using ultrasonic guided waves to monitor concrete setting and hardening process.
Researchers measured directivity of live speech at higher angular and frequency resolutions than have been previously measured
Compared to the songs produced by many songbird species, black-capped chickadee song is relatively simple
This study focuses on demonstrating the feasibility of acoustic detection of potential mice intrusions.
Communicating sounds with voice and gesture is much more effective than describing them with words and sentences.
There are good indications that dementia can be characterized by several aphasias (defects in the use of speech).
Researchers will show that the use of acoustic levitation is effective in providing the ideal conditions for probing the cells.
Researchers hypothesized that the women would exhibit a greater right ear advantage during the days that they menstruate than during other days of their menstrual cycle.
wise project leaders involve a noise control engineer early in the design process to develop a fitness center next to which everyone will want to live.
Did you know that your ears could sing? You may be surprised to hear that they, in fact, have the capacity to make particularly good performers and recent psychoacoustics research has revealed the true potential of the ears within musical creativity.
4aEA10 – Preliminary evaluation of the sound absorption coefficient of a thin coconut coir fiber panel for automotive applications
This work compares the sound absorption coefficient between a thin coconut coir fiber panel and a composite panel made by fiberglass and expanded polyurethane foam
The information of this subsurface soil is required for agricultural, environmental, civil engineering, and military applications.
Nonlinear acoustics is extremely sensitive to tiny cracks and thus early damage.
1pAB6 – Long-lasting suppression of spontaneous firing in inferior colliculus neurons: implication to the residual inhibition of tinnitus
Increased knowledge about residual inhibition may not only shed light on the cause of tinnitus, but also may open an opportunity to develop an effective tinnitus treatment.
