  2. 2. Drum sound from floor coverings - objective and subjective assessment

    Author : Ann-Charlotte Johansson; Teknisk akustik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; vakuumteknik; vibrationer; akustik; hydraulik; Maskinteknik; vacuum technology; vibration and acoustic engineering; hydraulics; acoustic standard; Mechanical engineering; tapping machine; veneer flooring; parquet flooring; binaural recording; foot impact; loudness; sound quality; listening test; paired comparisons; walking sound; drum sound; building acoustics; psychoacoustics; laminate flooring;

    Abstract : Drum sound is the sound produced when an object, such as a foot, hits the flooring in the room in which the receiving ear is located. Drum sound has attracted interest in recent years, particularly due to an increased use of thin floating floor constructions, such as veneer or laminate flooring, which can produce loud and sharp walking sound.

    Abstract : I undertake a metaphysical investigation of Saul Kripke's modern classic, Naming and Necessity (1980). The general problem of my study may be expressed as follows: What is the metaphysical justification of the validity and existence of the pertinent classes of truths, the necessary a posteriori and the contingent a priori, according to the Kripke Paradigm? My approach is meant to disclose the logical and ontological principles underlying Kripke's arguments for the necessary a posteriori and the contingent a priori respectively. READ MORE

  5. 5. Sound Field Design for Transducer Array-Based Acoustic Levitation

    Author : Carl Andersson; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURAL SCIENCES; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Sound Field Design; Acoustic Levitation; Transducer Arrays; Numerical Optimization; Nonlinear Acoustics;

    Abstract : Acoustic levitation is a technique where sound waves are used to hold an object at a designated position, suspending it against other external forces and keeping it stable in the desired position. Transducer arrays are an arrangement of many loudspeaker elements, tuned such that the array creates a sound field that is too complicated for the individual elements to produce on their own.
