The aeroacoustic mechanisms in human voice production are complex coupled processes that are still not fully understood. In this article, a hybrid numerical approach to analyzing sound generation in human voice production is presented. First, the fluid flow problem is solved using a parallel finite-volume computational fluid dynamics (CFD) solver on a fine(More)
An advanced Finite Element Method is presented which is being applied to simulate fluid flow interacting with a soft structure. Furthermore, the generated sound from fluid flow and structural mechanics is also taken into account. To get a correct model for the acoustic source terms resulting from the fluid flow Lighthill's analogy is applied, while(More)
For understanding the phonatory process in human voice production, physical as well as numerical models have been suggested. Material properties within these models are crucial for achieving vocal fold dynamics being close to in vivo human laryngeal dynamics. Hence, different approaches have been suggested to gain insight into human laryngeal tissue,(More)
