The tissue mechanics governing vocal-fold closure and collision during phonation are modeled in order to evaluate the role of elastic forces in glottal closure and in the development of stresses that may be a risk factor for pathology development. The model is a nonlinear dynamic contact problem that incorporates a three-dimensional, linear elastic, finite-element representation of a single vocal fold, a rigid midline surface, and quasistatic air pressure boundary conditions.

The results show that the subglottal pressure and the transverse stiffness of the vocal folds in the coronal plane have the largest and most consistent effect on the peak contact pressure, indicating the importance of maintaining a balance between the sub glottal Pressure and transverse stiffening to avoiding vocal fold injury.

Modeling viscous dissipation during vocal fold contact: the influence of tissue viscosity and thickness with implications for hydration

A viscoelastic model of the stresses during vocal fold contact is developed, which assumes the cover to be a poroelastic structure wherein interstitial fluid translocates in response to mechanical squeezing.

The role of finite displacements in vocal fold modeling.

A two-dimensional model is used to study the effect of geometric nonlinearity on the vocal fold and the airflow and suggests that using the large-displacement formulation in a computational model would be more appropriate for accurate simulations of the vocal Fold dynamics.

Finite Element Modeling of Vocal Fold Vibration in Normal Phonation and Hyperfunctional Dysphonia: Implications for the Pathogenesis of Vocal Nodules

A computer model of the vocal fold was developed using finite element modeling technology, and high shearing stress occurred at the base of the modeled vocal fold mass, suggesting that the presence of a vocal nodule or polyp is associated with high mechanical stress at the margins of the mass.

Stress-Strain Response of the Human Vocal Ligament

The stress-strain and Young's modulus curves showed the typical hysteresis and nonlinearity seen previously in other vocal fold tissues (muscle and mucosa), but the non linearity was most profound for the vocal ligament.

Simulations show reasonable similarity to observed vocal-fold motion, measured vertical phase difference, and mucosal wave velocity, as well as experimentally obtained intraglottal pressure.

Normal modes in a continuum model of vocal fold tissues.

Two of the lower-order eigenmodes are theorized to play a major role in facilitating self-oscillation of the folds during phonation, and one mode is shown to have a more direct control over glottal convergence/divergence than indicated in previous calculations.
