  1. 1. Textile Sound Design

    Author : Margareta Zetterblom; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURAL SCIENCES; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; The Cresson Institute; Textile design; acoustics; phenomenography; sound environment; sound absorbing textiles; Pierre Schaeffer; phenomenology; interactive textile design; textile sound design;

    Abstract : There are a number of ways to describe the aesthetical expression of a textile, but how is it possible to express its sound affecting qualities? This thesis aims at developing conceptual and methodological tools in order to adapt sound within the textile design area. Occupational groups working with sound are to a large extent problem driven.

  2. 2. Studies in Sound Symbolism

    Author : Åsa Abelin; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; sound symbolism; lexical structure; synaesthesia; productivity; universals;

    Abstract : This thesis investigates how the Swedish lexicon is structured with respect to sound symbolism, the productivity of phonesthemes and cross language similarities in certain areas of sound symbolism. The Swedish lexicon has been analyzed with emphasis on the sound symbolic properties of initial and final consonant clusters, and to a certain extent of vowels. READ MORE

  3. 3. Airborne sound insulation of single and double plate constructions

    Author : Ulrica Kernen; Gudni Jóhannesson; Waldemar Maysenhölder; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Construction engineering; : Airborne sound insulation; single plate; double plate; floating-floor; sound reduction index; sound transmission.; Byggnadsteknik; Building engineering; Byggnadsteknik;

    Abstract : The sound insulation demands for dwellings and public building has increased over the years as the number of sound sources has grown. From the outside our homes are exposed to noise from cars, trains, airplanes, etc. Noise intrudes from our neighbours and their television and stereo equipments. READ MORE

  4. 4. Structure-borne sound properties of vibration isolators

    Author : Leif Kari; KTH; []
    Keywords : TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIKVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : This thesis consists of four papers concerning the audibledynamic stiffness of a vibration isolator; includingmeasurements and theoretical modeling. The study focus isrubber isolators, being the most popular material in theaudible frequency domain - though the measurement principlealso applies to other resilient elements. READ MORE

  5. 5. Acoustical properties of earplugs

    Author : Per Hiselius; Teknisk akustik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Maskinteknik; hydraulik; vakuumteknik; vibrationer; akustik; vibration and acoustic engineering; vacuum technology; hydraulics; Mechanical engineering; acoustic modelling; objective measurement; insertion loss; earplugs; HPE; HPD; hearing protectors; Two-Port; Four-Pole; attenuation; electro acoustics; acoustics;

    Abstract : In this study an experimental setup for measurements of high impedance objects in ducts, yielding the acoustical Two-Port properties of the object, is applied to earplugs. A frequently used experimental setup for measuring objective acoustical properties of earplugs is that of artificial ears. Great effort is spent on duplicating the human ear. READ MORE
