This study focuses on a particular attribute of trumpet tones, the brightness, and on the physical characteristics of the instrument thought to govern its magnitude. On the one hand, an objective study was carried out with input impedance measurements, and, on the other hand, a subjective study with hearing tests and a panel of subjects. To create a set of(More)
This paper describes a user-centered design method, which allows the integration of user's perceptions in different stages of the design process, by taking into account his/her needs and preferences. It relies on two domains which remain generally distinct: the design with a scientific approach (generally math-based) and the integration of users'(More)
Numerical models and computer-aided modeling software are tools commonly used to assess the accessibility of an environment, based on static human body dimensions. In this paper, the limits of validity of these approaches are assessed by comparing the reach envelopes obtained by these methods to those obtained experimentally. First, the accessibility areas(More)

This paper presents a contribution to design an online preference based system. The objective of the system is to assist a customer in the products selection process. Current e-commerce recommendation systems assist customers in this process. Nevertheless, quality of the recommendations produced remains a real challenge. There are products that are by(More)
Layout design optimization has a significant impact in the design and use of many engineering products and systems. Real-world layout problems are usually considered as complex problems because of the geometry of components, the problem density and the great number of designer's requirements. Solving these optimization problems is a hard and time consuming(More)
