In this paper, we present the spectral analysis of the sound recorded from a musical pillar at Vitthala temple, Hampi - a world heritage site. The pillars in this temple have musical columns which produce sounds of different musical instruments when struck with a thumb (i.e., a kind of impulse-like excitation). The sound recorded from a pillar is found to produce bell-like sound. In addition, an analysis is presented to model dynamics of such columns in a pillar to find the flexural frequencies…

Nondestructive characterization of musical pillars of Mahamandapam of Vitthala Temple at Hampi, India.

The peak frequencies in the amplitude spectrum of the sound produced from various columns in these pillars are correlated with the dimensional measurements and ultrasonic velocity determined using impact echo technique, and have excellent correlation with the calculated flexural frequencies based on the dimensional measured velocities of the columns.

Signal processing using the Teager Energy Operator and other nonlinear operators

The Teager Energy Operator is a nonlinear operator defined for both continuous and discrete time signals. In this thesis we define different versions and extensions of the one-dimensional operator,
