In previous experimental studies it has been observed that the minimum lung pressure to sustain vocal fold oscillation after its onset is lower than the threshold pressure needed to initiate it. This phenomenon is studied analytically using a previous body-cover model of the vocal folds and applying the describing function method to the general case of large amplitude oscillations. It is shown that the phenomenon is a consequence of the nonlinear characteristic of the effective aerodynamic… Expand

Figures and Topics from this paper

The minimum glottal airflow to initiate vocal fold oscillation.
TLDR
The study has theoretically shown that PTF is a sensitive aerodynamic parameter dependent on tissue properties, glottal configuration, and vocal tract loading and the potential significance of PTF in investigating the energy distribution in a vocal fold vibration system and related clinical applications is discussed. Expand
A lumped mucosal wave model of the vocal folds revisited: recent extensions and oscillation hysteresis.
TLDR
An updated version of a lumped mucosal wave model of the vocal fold oscillation during phonation is examined, finding that an oscillation hysteresis phenomenon may occur, with different values for the oscillation onset and offset threshold. Expand

TLDR
The dynamics of the oscillation is analyzed from the perspective of the theory of nonlinear dynamical systems, using a mucosal wave model of the vocal folds with the subglottal pressure and the vocal fold half-width as control parameters. Expand
Aerodynamic transfer of energy to the vocal folds.
TLDR
The results support the hypothesis that a cyclic variation of the orifice profile from a convergent to a divergent shape leads to a temporal asymmetry in the average wall pressure, which is the key factor for the achievement of self-sustained vocal fold oscillations. Expand
Effects of mucosal loading on vocal fold vibration.
TLDR
It was found that phonation instability pressure increases with the coupling constant R(mu) but decreases with the stiffness Constant R(k) of mucosal loading, and it was concluded that mucosalloading directly affects voice production. Expand
Further studies of phonation threshold pressure in a physical model of the vocal fold mucosa.
TLDR
Results of further experimentation on a previously developed physical model of the vocal-fold mucosa show that the threshold for more convergent or divergent glottal geometries was consistently higher, and only partially agrees with previous analytical work which predicts a lowest threshold for a divergentglottis.

Aerodynamics of the Human Larynx During Vocal Fold Vibration
TLDR
This study comprehensively analyzed the influence of aerodynamics on laryngeal function and determination of the threshold subglottic pressure for vocal fold vibration and its dependence on other aerodynamic factors was determined. Expand

TLDR
The origin of the optimal configuration of the glottal configuration is investigated using a low dimensional mathematical model of the vocal fold, showing that the phonation threshold pressure is minimum when the vocal folds are slightly separated in a near rectangular glottis. Expand
Direct measurement of onset and offset phonation threshold pressure in normal subjects.
TLDR
Univariate analysis showed that phonation threshold pressure was influenced most strongly by fundamental frequency and intensity, and multiple linear regression showed that these two variables, as well as laryngeal airway resistance, most strongly predicted phonation thresholds pressure. Expand
Influence of glottal cross-section shape on phonation onset.
TLDR
The glottal cross-section shape is taken into account in the flow model in order to capture its influence on vocal folds oscillation to assess kinetic and viscous flow losses. Expand

TLDR
It is shown that vocal tract inertance reduces the oscillation threshold pressure, whereas vocal tract resistance increases it, and the treatment is harmonized with former treatments based on two-mass models and collapsible tubes. Expand

TLDR
It is shown that singers obtain two to three times greater peak flow for a given lung pressure, suggesting that they adjust their glottal or vocal tract impedance for optimal flow transfer between the source and the resonantor. Expand
