  • Noise robust speech rate estimation using signal-to-noise ratio dependent sub-band selection and peak detection strategy September 12, 2019
    The Journal of the Acoustical Society of America, Volume 146, Issue 3, Page 1615-1628, September 2019. Speech (syllable) rate estimation typically involves computing a feature contour based on sub-band energies having strong local maxima/peaks at syllable nuclei, which are detected with the help of voicing decisions (VDs). While such a two-stage scheme works well in […]

  • Aero-tactile integration during speech perception: Effect of response and stimulus characteristics on syllable identification September 11, 2019
    The Journal of the Acoustical Society of America, Volume 146, Issue 3, Page 1605-1614, September 2019. Integration of auditory and aero-tactile information during speech perception has been documented during two-way closed-choice syllable classification tasks [Gick and Derrick (2009). Nature 462, 502–504], but not during an open-choice task using continuous speech perception [Derrick, O'Beirne, Gorden, De […]

  • Experimental and analytical evaluation of the acoustic radiation of femtosecond laser plasma filament sound sources in air September 11, 2019
    The Journal of the Acoustical Society of America, Volume 146, Issue 3, Page EL212-EL218, September 2019. Plasma filaments in air induced by femtosecond laser pulses lead to the generation of strong shock waves. This letter presents a systematic study, both experimental and theoretical, of the acoustic radiation by femtosecond laser-generated filaments. A theoretical model is […]

  • The relative size of auditory scenes of multiple talkers September 11, 2019
    The Journal of the Acoustical Society of America, Volume 146, Issue 3, Page EL219-EL224, September 2019. Normal hearing listeners discriminated a change in the number of talkers speaking consonant-vowel pairs between two auditory scenes. The number of talkers (n = 2, 4, 6, or 8) in one scene was incremented by Δn talkers (Δn = 1–8 talkers, depending on […]

  • Normal mode dispersion and time warping in the coastal ocean September 10, 2019
    The Journal of the Acoustical Society of America, Volume 146, Issue 3, Page EL205-EL211, September 2019. Simple, analytically solvable models of normal mode propagation in the coastal ocean are developed and applied to study the effect of the seafloor bathymetry on modal travel times. Within the adiabatic approximation, horizontal inhomogeneity of the waveguide is found […]

  • On ray tracing for sharp changing media September 10, 2019
    The Journal of the Acoustical Society of America, Volume 146, Issue 3, Page 1595-1604, September 2019. Ray tracing is an integral part of modern imaging and inversion techniques. Several methods have been proposed depending on the requirements of the application. Some algorithms are best applied to fast changing material properties, like an interface between two […]

  • Acoustic voice variation within and between speakers September 9, 2019
    The Journal of the Acoustical Society of America, Volume 146, Issue 3, Page 1568-1579, September 2019. Little is known about the nature or extent of everyday variability in voice quality. This paper describes a series of principal component analyses to explore within- and between-talker acoustic variation and the extent to which they conform to expectations […]

  • Insertion loss of asymmetrical balconies on a building façade September 9, 2019
    The Journal of the Acoustical Society of America, Volume 146, Issue 3, Page 1580-1594, September 2019. The acoustical insertion loss of asymmetrical balconies on high-rise buildings was studied experimentally using a 1:3 scaled down model in the present study. Four balcony forms featured by the presence of a full-height side-wall were included. A linear loudspeaker […]

  • On the nonlinear temperature dependence of elastic constants and wave velocities for solid media with applications to geologic materials September 5, 2019
    The Journal of the Acoustical Society of America, Volume 146, Issue 3, Page 1556-1567, September 2019. Temperature-induced variations of elastic moduli in solid media are generally characterized by a strong nonlinear dependence on temperature associated with complex deformations under thermal treatments. Conventional thermoelasticity with third-order elastic constants for the one-order temperature dependence has been extensively […]
