The study provides information on experimental research on a complete 1:1 scaled model of human phonation. The model includes human lungs, the trachea, the laryngeal part with artificial vocal folds and the vocal tracts designed for different vowels. The measurement set up enables modelling the time signals not easily measured in humans during phonation as for example fluctuations of the subglottic, laryngeal and oral pressures measured simultaneously with the glottis opening and the glottis area registered by a high-speed camera. The simulation of phonation is performed in the ranges of the airflow rate and the subglottic pressure typical for a normal humans’ physiology.
