Journal of Measurements in Engineering

Special Issue on Modelling and Analysis in Musical Acoustics

The List of Principal Topics:

  • ▸ Analytical, numerical and experimental modelling of Musical Instruments
  • ▸ Modelling of Speech, singing and the acoustics of the vocal tract
  • ▸ Modelling of musical instruments and connection to music
  • ▸ Sound radiation patterns and its connection to music

Summary and Scope

The sound and vibration of musical instruments has intrigued the world for years. However, the physical characterization and modelling of many musical instruments is not yet studied to great details. Even if some instruments like guitar and violin are studied, the connection of modal shapes of body with music is also not studied in great details. This Special Issue intends to collect studies about the acoustics and vibration of all available musical instruments. This issue is intended for researchers who intend to propose a high level of unpublished research, both with theoretical and experimental modeling and characterization of musical instruments.
