Numerical simulation of self-sustained oscillation of a voice-producing element based on Navier-Stokes equations and the finite element method.

Surgical removal of the larynx results in radically reduced production of voice and speech. To improve voice quality a voice-producing element (VPE) is developed, based on the lip principle, called after the lips of a musician while playing a brass instrument. To optimize the VPE, a numerical model is developed. In this model, the finite element method is… CONTINUE READING
