  • Acoustic Absorption Characterization and Prediction of Natural Coir Fibers
    • Abstract: Abstract The remarkable properties of natural lignocellulosic fibers such as biodegradability, light weight, low density, low cost and non-toxicity as well as being an alternative to sound absorbers made of synthetic fibers have attracted many researchers in the field of acoustics. The purpose of the present study was to compare the estimated sound absorption coefficient of composite samples made of natural coconut fibers by using empirical models and comparing them with the results of experimental data. The normal sound absorption coefficients of the samples were measured with an impedance tube. The samples were fabricated in three different thicknesses (25, 35 and 45 mm) with air gaps behind them and had a constant density of 200 kg/m3. Next, calculations were made to estimate the absorption coefficients of the samples by coding in MATLAB and using the differential equation algorithm along with Delany–Bazley, Miki and Johnson–Champoux–Allard models. Based on the results, the sound absorption coefficients of the samples increased significantly with increasing frequency. Additionally, increasing the thickness of materials at constant densities increases the absorption of sound, especially at lower frequencies (< 1000 Hz). Comparison of the experimental data and estimations of the models showed that by increasing thickness, the predicted acoustic absorption coefficients for the samples become closer to the data from the experimental tests. At frequencies < 1000 Hz, increasing the air gap at the back of the sample to 3 cm would elevate the values of sound absorption coefficient. The samples made of coir fibers would effectively dissipate the energy of sound waves. It is noted that increasing the absorption of the sound in such materials is related to the longer depreciation process of thermal and viscous transfer between the air and the absorbing materials in the composite.

  • A Computational Model to Implement Binaural Synthesis in a Hard Real-Time
           Auditory Virtual Environment
    • Abstract: Abstract There is a growing interest in the development and the evaluation of real-time auditory virtual environments (AVE). The implementation of this type of simulation system in general purpose computers is a still a challenge, and there are few studies that evaluated the perceived quality of synthetized sounds of simulated acoustic scenes. To evoke in the listener a correct image of the modeling space, the system must be dynamic and interactive. That is, it must respond to the changes in the acoustic scenario produced by the listener movement, in a perceptually acceptable time and with an update rate that guarantees continuity in the reproduction of sound events. Hard real-time systems ensure that a given task runs within a given time interval, providing deterministic behavior for applications with time restrictions. In the current article, a computational model to implement binaural synthesis in a hard real-time AVE is presented and evaluated. The computer model was implemented in an open-source auralization system. Measurements and real-time simulations on a university classroom were carried out to perform a reverberation time parameters validation and a system performance evaluation. Also, measured and simulated binaural soundtracks (composed from anechoic stimuli) were compared in terms of three selected perceptual attributes for subjective evaluations of static positions. The results showed that real-time performance was acceptable according to values previously reported in the literature and that computer prediction errors for the measured parameters were within the subjective difference limens. The computational model was able to generate an AVE with an acceptable overall perceptual quality.

  • Underwater Sound Sources and Ambient Noise in Fowlers Bay, South
           Australia, during the Austral Winter
    • Abstract: Abstract Passive acoustic recordings made in Fowlers Bay, South Australia, during the austral winter of 2013–2017 revealed the presence of several sources of underwater sound. Sound sources of biological origin include baleen and toothed whales, fish and shrimp. Physical sources of underwater sound include wind- and rain-driven noises, and underwater sounds of anthropogenic origin were primarily from boats and occasionally from an aircraft. Biological sound sources were commonly recorded within the frequency range of around 25 Hz to nearly 17 kHz, with baleen whales within the range of ~ 25 Hz to 6 kHz, and dolphins at higher frequencies of approximately 2.5–17 kHz. Broadband sounds from physical and anthropogenic sound sources were noticeable at frequencies above ~ 50 Hz. The ambient noise level in Fowlers Bay at frequencies below 100 Hz was relatively low (around 75 dB re 1 µPa2/Hz for the 95% percentile) due to an insignificant contribution of noise from distant shipping. At higher frequencies, the noise level was governed primarily by noise from wind and varied by nearly 30 dB re 1 µPa2/Hz depending on weather conditions, up to around 80 dB re 1 µPa2/Hz for the 95% percentile during periods of strong winds and intense rainfall.

  • The Analysis of Acoustic Propagation Characteristic Affected by Mesoscale
           Cold-Core Vortex Based on the UMPE Model
    • Abstract: Abstract The ocean mesoscale vortex can make uneven distribution of sound energy, which has a significant impact on underwater acoustic equipment, weapons and submarine warfare. Based on the observed data of 2014 West Pacific sea oceanographic survey, the influence of the properties, strength, position and depth of the mesoscale vortex on the acoustic propagation characteristics is simulated by the parabolic equation. Our observed vortex is a typical cyclone-type cold vortex in the Kuroshio extension body, and the cold water turns on intensely at the center of vortex. The effect depth of vortex is 500 m, and then, the parabolic equation of acoustic model is used to analyze and simulate the impact of mesoscale cold-core vortex on acoustic transmission loss. Results show that the horizontal perturbation of the surface velocity caused by mesoscale vortex has a great influence on the spatial distribution of water sound field. The cold vortex makes the position of the convergence zone move forward, with the width reduced, and the gain efficiency enhanced. When sound propagates outside of the cold-core vortex, compared with inside of the cold-core vortex, the assembled areas are backward, with the width increased, and gain effect weakened. The non-uniform hydrological environment caused by the ocean mesoscale vortex is a key modulating factor of the abnormal variation of acoustic energy in spatial distribution.

  • Flow Noise Characteristics Analysis of Underwater High-Speed Vehicle Based
           on LES/FW-H Coupling Model
    • Abstract: Abstract Before cavitation occurs, the underwater vehicle’ noise is mainly composed of structural noise, mechanical noise, instrument noise, etc. The noise mainly radiate in multipole form. And the line and non-line spectrums coexist in the noise spectrum. Besides, it changes with the flow velocity and the environmental pressure. Once the cavitation occurs, there are obvious differences in the noise spectrum. In order to study the noise characteristics of underwater high-speed vehicle, a numerical model of LES/FW-H coupling is established based on VOF multiphase flow and Schnerr and Sauer cavitation model. Then, the numerical simulation and water tunnel experiments are carried out to obtain the noise characteristics of the vehicle on different working conditions. The source of the noise is analyzed. The influence of velocity, pressure and cavitation on the noise and the directivity of the noise are revealed. The results of this paper can provide some reference for the study of the noise characteristics of underwater high-speed vehicle. It is helpful to better grasp the related technology of underwater high-speed vehicle and provide some support for reducing the noise of the high-speed vehicle or its detection.

  • Comparison Analysis and Optimization of Composite Micro-perforated
           Absorbers in Sound Absorption Bandwidth
    • Abstract: Abstract Micro-perforated panel (MPP) absorber with a single uniform air cavity is regarded as a promising sound-absorbing structure; however, MPP absorption performance remains unfortunately limited due to the Helmholtz resonance mechanism, which results in more and more attention being placed on composite MPP absorbers. This study focuses on acoustic properties of different composite MPP absorbers, including three types of composite MPP absorbers which are coupled in serial, parallel and serial–parallel modes. Their mathematical models of the normal absorption coefficient are established by utilizing the acoustic electric analogy method. The single-cavity MPP absorber and three composite MPP absorbers are preliminarily designed to verify the equivalent circuit models and perform a pilot analysis of their sound absorption characteristics. Moreover, the particle swarm optimization algorithm is selected to optimize the absorbers so that optimal combination of structure parameters within a prescribed frequency range can be obtained. In addition, the absorbers are made based on the optimized parameters for experimental investigation. The results show that a wider absorption bandwidth may be achieved by composite MPP absorbers through introducing additional absorption peaks with reference to that for the conventional single-cavity MPP absorber, and there are more absorption peaks for the serial–parallel-coupled MPP absorber rather than the simply serial- or parallel-coupled MPP absorber so that better sound absorption effect may be achieved.

  • Empirical Study of Room Acoustic Conditions and Neurophysiologic Strain in
           Staff Working in Special Open-Plan Bank Offices
    • Abstract: Abstract Noise in open-plan offices induces psychological stress and fatigue in staff. Focusing on workstations and noise exposure, this study investigated acoustic conditions in special open-plan offices and their relationship with neurophysiologic strain. Twenty banks and 104 participants were randomly selected. Acoustic properties of banks and workstation partitions were assessed using the ISO criteria and speech transmission index (STI). Equivalent noise level (LAeq) of the staff was measured in three 30-min intervals, and skin conductance level (SCL) and respiratory rate (RR) of staff were assessed in three 5-min intervals at the beginning, in the middle, and at the end of the work hours. The intelligibility of speech between staff workstations (SW) was better than that between staff and clients (S&C). The observed condition should be reversed to ensure speech privacy for the staff and speech intelligibility between the staff and clients. The findings indicated that with increasing LAeq of the staff, the SCL and RR, i.e., the stress of staff increased too. Yet, the staff with more work experience showed a lower increase in SCL. The correlation between STI and staff strain was not statistically significant; however, with increasing STI between SW and with decreasing STI between S&C, the staff strain increased. With increasing noise exposure, psychological stress of the staff increased too. Because of the acoustic condition and partitions used in the banks, the acoustic comfort of staff was not desirable. Since many other banks use such partitions, any improvement in partitions between workstations can enhance acoustic comfort in the banks.

  • A Case Study of Recording Soundwalk of Miyajima and Itsukushima Shrine
           Using Smartphone
    • Abstract: Abstract In this paper, we present soundwalk of Miyajima and Itsukushima Shrine which was captured with a smartphone’s built-in microphone calibrated against a typical type 1 sound level meter using NoiseExplorer our in-house developed Android app. Itsukushima Shrine (Itsukushima-jinja) is a Shinto shrine on the island of Itsukushima (popularly known as Miyajima), best known for its “floating” or “half-submerged” torii gate. It is in the southern part of Hatsukaichi in Hiroshima Prefecture in Japan. The shrine complex was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1996. NoiseExplorer app records the audio from microphone as WAV files and the current location of the smartphone to log files. The WAV files were used to analyze sound pressure level and generate frequency spectrums and spectrograms, whereas log files were used to generate noise maps. These two capabilities of smartphones make them cheap and versatile means of recording and describing soundwalk or soundscape of any site in the world. We discuss the unique soundscape of the cross-channel ferry, the shrine itself, the footpath going up to the nearby mountain and the soundwalk captured using a smartphone. The overall noise level of 64.1 dBA is well below the typical noise level of other Japanese tourist attractions.

  • Absorption Performance of an Anechoic Layer with a Steel Plate Backing at
           Oblique Incidence
    • Abstract: Abstract The sound absorption of steel-plate-backed anechoic coatings at oblique incidence is investigated theoretically and numerically. An analytical expression for the absorption coefficient is derived using elasticity theory. A 2D numerical periodic model suitable for inhomogeneous coatings under oblique incidence is built using the finite-element method. To interpret the absorption mechanism, the dispersion curves for guided elastic waves in a uniform coating and a steel plate are calculated using the spectral method. The absorption coefficients are analyzed with respect to the incident angle and frequency using elastic plate resonance theory. The effects of the steel plate backing and the attenuation of the coating are investigated. For the Alberich anechoic coating with a steel plate backing, the absorption coefficients are calculated numerically, and the absorption mechanism is investigated by structural displacement vectors and deformations. The following absorption characteristics can be found. In the frequency-angle spectra for absorption coefficients, the bright areas resulting from low-order Lamb waves in the coating are recognizable at low frequencies. A broad, strong anechoic area appears at large incident angles and low frequencies; under these conditions, the displacements of the steel plate and the 2D cavity are the main components of structural vibration. The resonance moves to low frequency when the thickness of the steel plate is incorporated and the cavity height is increased. At relatively high frequencies, some new absorption areas result from the resonance of periodic cavities and cover the contribution from the high-order Lamb waves in the coating caused by attenuation. The corresponding absorption coefficients decrease with an increasing angle of incidence.

  • Effects of Different Lung Volume Conditions on Closed Quotient, Vocal
           Fundamental Frequency and Relative Intensity in Vocally Untrained Female
    • Abstract: Abstract The objective of this study was to determine the relationship between lung volume (LV) conditions and vocal fold vibratory patterns using measurements of closed quotient (CQ), fundamental frequency (F0) and relative vocal intensity. Forty-three healthy and vocally untrained females were asked to produce the vowel /a/ following breathing instructions that cued for higher, habitual, or lower LV conditions. Closed quotient was measured by electroglottography (EGG) and analyzed using criterion-level method of 25%. An average of CQ, F0 and relative vocal intensity were obtained. No significant difference was observed in CQ between cued LV conditions; however, there was a trend for CQ to increase in the cued high LV condition. Relative vocal intensity and F0 differed significantly across all conditions with higher F0 and relative vocal intensity observed at the high LV condition. These findings suggested that the use of different cued LVs did not have a significant impact on CQ. This may have been due to (1) the phonatory task, (2) variability in responses to the breathing instructions between individuals, and (3) the measurement of CQ. However, F0 and relative vocal intensity were significantly influenced by the LV. This offers a possible alternative approach in cueing pitch and loudness in singing and voice therapy.

  • Determination of Risky Areas at the Marble Workshops in Terms of Noise
    • Abstract: Abstract Noise is the most persistent physical contaminant in the environment. In this study, noise level and noise propagation were investigated during the working of natural stone cutting–processing machines used in the natural stone workshops. For this purpose, emerged noise was recorded and analyzed while cutting and processing of marble samples in a workshop where side cutting machine (cross-cutting), portable sawing machine and vibratory tumbling machine are used. Noise level maps were prepared by using equivalent noise data obtained from 110 regular points in the natural stone workshop. They were created by building grids using noise propagation variogram models, and plotting contour maps with Surfer version 10.2 software using kriging method. Risky areas were determined using noise propagation maps and also daily noise exposure limit values and working time. For risky areas in which a high level of noise was detected; the working time restriction, use of personal protective equipment or both are required.

  • Matecho: An Open-Source Tool for Processing Fisheries Acoustics Data
    • Abstract: Abstract Matecho is an automated processing method to extract information and perform echo-integration and fish shoal extraction from various scientific echo-sounder sources providing digital acoustic data on fisheries and aquatic ecosystem. The open-source initiative helps foster collaboration and technological transfer. Matecho supports various formats, such as the international standard format for the exchange of fisheries acoustics raw and edited data. The procedure allows the semiautomatic cleaning of echogram data and the application of automatic data filters, i.e., transient noise, attenuated signal and impulsive noise removal and background noise reduction. Echo-integration processing is executed for each depth layer and integrates their characteristics per elementary sampling unit. Sound scattered layers are automatically detected by segmentation from the echo-integrated echogram, and shoals are extracted according to an iterative process of aggregation of filtered echogram echoes that allows, in both cases, the calculation of the ad hoc parameters describing morphological, spatial location and acoustic characteristics of sound scattered layers and shoals. Matecho is open-source software for researchers and provides end users with a user-friendly, free executable program.

  • Analysis and Control for the Intake Noise of a Vehicle
    • Abstract: Abstract The sound quality of a vehicle equipped with an inline four-cylinder engine is poor at around 2250 rpm with characteristic of prominent pure tone. The experimental results indicate that the second (2nd)-order intake noise has a peak at this engine speed. To understand the mechanism and solve this problem, the finite element model of the entire intake system is established to calculate the acoustic mode. Meanwhile, the 1D computational fluid dynamics (CFD) model integrating the intake/exhaust system with the engine is constructed to predict the intake noise. The modal analysis results demonstrate that the natural frequency of the intake system is close to the frequency of the 2nd-order periodic pressure pulsation noise at around 2250 rpm. The resonance of the air column is the main cause of the above-mentioned problem. The results of 1D-CFD simulation agree well with the experiment. Based on the analysis results and considering the constrains of engine cabin space, three kinds of control measures are proposed, which include changing the length of intake dirty pipe, changing the length of the clean pipe and installing the Helmholtz resonator. The simulation results are as follows: (1) By increasing the length of intake dirty pipe appropriately, the 2nd-order noise is reduced at low engine speed, while increased at high engine speed. (2) The length of the intake clean pipe has obvious influence on the acoustic mode of the intake system, but little influence on the total noise, and the 2nd-order noise attenuation is not obvious. (3) Helmholtz resonator can attenuate the total noise and the 2nd-order noise in most of engine speed range. Therefore, the Helmholtz resonator is used for the solution. The acoustical characteristics of the intake noise and the vehicle sound quality are improved.

  • Turbojet Test Cell and Noise Impact Assessment in the Vicinity of Romanian
           Research and Development Institute for Gas Turbines COMOTI
    • Abstract: Abstract In this paper, the noise impact of a turbojet testing cell on the adjacent community is investigated. There are scenarios in which the noise from two different turbo engines is analysed. For the noise impact study, acoustic measurements were taken in the test cell to obtain the transmission loss of the three silencers of the test cell. To allow testing of high-power turbojets as Viper or R-11F-300 Tumansky, the test cell was restored and relocated to minimize the noise impact on the surrounding area. The study presents the affected buildings and the number of inhabitants exposed to noise that is assessed according to a German VBEB method based on noise level at façade of the buildings. The study presents the calculus methodologies of the acoustic propagation according ISO 9613-2 on the surrounding area and the noise limits according to the national legislation. To reduce the conflict areas, a technical solution for the intake silencer is proposed.

  • Assessment of Acoustical Indicators in Multi-domed Historic Structures by
           Non-exponential Energy Decay Analysis
    • Abstract: The key concern of this study is to discuss the reliable acoustical metrics for analyzing particular sound fields within monumental multi-domed sacred spaces with an emphasis on multiple sound energy decay formation. The potential of such structures in featuring non-exponential sound energy decay characteristics necessitates new formulation of sound decay indicators in understanding of their sound fields. The early and late energy decay components within non-exponential sound energy decays can have a unique contribution to the interior acoustic quality. These acoustical features can also provide the functional and spiritual acoustical needs of monumental sacred spaces. Süleymaniye Mosque and Hagia Sophia, two major monuments of Istanbul World Heritage Site, are examined in this regard. Field measurements are the main method of data collection. Over collected room impulse responses, relevant acoustical predictors including decay rates and decay times are computed by applying Bayesian decay parameter estimation. Analysis results disclose double or triple decay formations in both structures.
      Authors argue that, the detection of multiple sound energy decays in analyzed structures sets out a new vision for room acoustics studies of sacred spaces and for multi-domed monuments. Thus, implementation of new metrics, namely multiple slope decay parameters to replace classical room acoustics indicators, is recommended and discussed in light of the outcomes of this study.

  • Comparison of Cepstral Peak Prominence Measures Using the ADSV,
           SpeechTool, and VoiceSauce Acoustic Analysis Programs in Vocally Healthy
           Female Speakers
    • Abstract: Abstract This study examined the correlation of, and agreement between, cepstral peak prominence (CPP) measures obtained from three acoustic analysis programs: Analysis of Dysphonia in Speech and Voice (ADSV), SpeechTool, and VoiceSauce. Voice data recorded from sustained /a/ vowel and connected speech of two cohorts of vocally healthy female participants were analysed using program default settings to measure smoothed CPP (CPPS) in ADSV, CPPS and CPP in SpeechTool, and CPP in VoiceSauce. Intraclass correlation coefficients, linear regression, and Bland–Altman plots were used for testing the correlation and agreement between these programs. There was good correlation between ADSV and SpeechTool with respect to vowel CPPS in both cohorts. Connected speech CPPS from these two programs showed moderate correlation in cohort 1 and good correlation in cohort 2. CPP values obtained from VoiceSauce were highly correlated with those from SpeechTool in both tasks. Bland–Altman plots showed that there were differences between programs in CPPS and CPP values. While CPPS and CPP values from these programs were correlated, they did not show absolute agreement. This implied possible different thresholds of detecting dysphonic severity across different acoustic analysis programs.

  • Noise Prediction in Industrial Workrooms Using Regression Modeling Methods
           Based on the Dominant Frequency Cutoff Point
    • Abstract: Abstract Noise pollution is one of the major problems in industrial environments. The physiological response to the noise in industrial environments depends on the characteristics of the noise and environment. This study aimed to develop an empirical model for predicting the level of noise in closed industrial spaces using regression modeling based on the dominant frequency cutoff point. After identifying and determining the effective input variables in the prediction of noise level, the relevant data were collected from 56 industrial workrooms and the model was developed using multiple regression technique. The two models were best fitted to estimate the noise level for workrooms with a dominant frequency of less or equal to and more than 250 Hz (R2 = 0.86, R2 = 0.85, respectively). Based on the results of this study, it is less costly and requires less equipment for noise evaluation and monitoring by the mentioned models during the design, implementation, and operation of industrial environments. These experimental models can be used as suitable measures for screening closed industrial spaces and ranking them in terms of the amount of noise pollution.

  • Comparison of the Effects on Memory Tasks of Babble and Broadband Noise
    • Authors: Brett R. C. Molesworth; Marion Burgess; Chloe Wilcock
      Abstract: Abstract The comparative effects on both working memory and recognition memory of the same A-weighted noise levels of background noise, typically of that present in many transportation work areas, were investigated (55 and 65 dBA). One noise was a babble, multi-talker incomprehensible speech and representative of the many work areas dealing with administrative tasks. The other noise was broadband and similar to services and machinery noise. Forty participants, half non-native English speakers, were asked to complete three different working memory tests (linguistics, grammatical reasoning and mathematics) and one recognition memory test (cued recall) in the presence of the two types of noise at the two different levels. Broadband noise at 65 dBA was found to adversely affect recall by as much as 15%. The native language advantage was only evident with the linguistic working memory task. The findings highlight the interplay between type of noise, level of noise, demand of task, and language background of the person completing the task, and also the limitations of the use of dBA alone for assessment of acceptability of a workspace.

  • Underwater Sound Source Localization by EMD-Based Maximum Likelihood
    • Authors: B Marxim Rahula Bharathi; A R Mohanty
      Abstract: Abstract The underwater object localization is important in defense, underwater biological and environmental applications. Localization using a passive sonar system is a challenging task. It is more challenging when the source and receivers are in the reverberant environment. Time delay estimation (TDE)-based localization is a well-known technique to localize source for last few decades. In this work, empirical mode decomposition maximum likelihood (EMD ML TDE) method is used to estimate the time delay in a reverberant environment. The sound source location is estimated by intersecting spherical surfaces from the time delay. The experimental results prove that EMD ML time delay estimation method is effective to localize a sound source in a reverberant environment.
