Probabilistic modeling by finite elements of the acoustic response of the outer ear excited by impulse

This topic tackles the specific objectives OS1 and OS4 and consists in developing a probabilistic model by FE of the acoustic response of the open earcanal for excitation by industrial impulse noise taking into account the transmission paths through the head. The model will be calibrated/validated in a Bayesian framework against measurements on the human subject from which the head model is reconstructed and will be used to study the mechanisms of sound transmission in the open earcanal.
