Sample text

The fourth note starts at a fixed frequency and then increases in pitch over about half a second. This is a sting bend. The final note oscillates in pitch for about a second and a half. This is vibrato. Also discernable is that the lower frequencies of the 4th and 5th notes sustain much longer than do the higher frequencies and that decay time is approximately inversely related to frequency. 23 Time, Frequency and Time-Frequency Plots of a Five Note Phrase Acoustics and Musical Theory 39 There are many different methods of transforming time domain signals into time-frequency domain.

RMS captures the amplitude of a signal that oscillates about zero. By international agreement [24], the standard reference value for sound measurements is 20 μPa (20 × 10-6 Pa). The RMS pressure in Pa is called sound pressure. The level reported in dB is called sound pressure level (SPL). 98 dB. It is useful to develop some intuition about what a sound pressure level means in real life. 5 shows some approximate sound levels for common activities. 4 Sound Radiation Radiation is the process of creating sound waves and letting them propagate away from the source.

For the first mode, p=1 and q=1. 14. The 1,1 mode has no interior node line. The 1,2 mode has one interior node line and two anti-nodes and so on. Note that there is more than one method of naming plate modes in the literature. Sometimes, they are named according to the number of internal node lines. Thus, the mode labeled here as (1,1) would be labeled (0,0). The underlying mechanical principles are unchanged by the naming convention. 14 Rectangular Plate Modes The moving portions of the rectangular plate act in the manner of pistons to create pressure waves (sound) that can then radiate out into the space in front of and behind the plate.
