Damping of human vocal folds vibration

pages 321 - 324, full text

This study investigates the biomechanics of the end-part of phonation, i.e. the so-called phonation offset, experimentally. This information of vocal fold damping is important for testing and further development of mathematical modelling of phonation. The measurements of the damping ratio, based on high-speed videolaryngoscopic registrations, were realized on a male subject phonating on the vowel [o:]. The results show during the phonation offset a remarkable decrease of vibration frequency of the vocal folds and an increased damping ratio limiting to the value D≈0.2. The results for vocal folds' damping are in agreement with previous measurements performed on humans using different methods.
