Most of receiving rooms for the measurement of floor impact sound have rectangular shapes with couple of meters of dimension, with reflective finishing, no furniture, no curtains. Modal overlaps in those condition are the major reason for the low reproducibility, and as a matter of course, the low credibility. It is the major purpose of this study that searching for a better measurement method which mitigate the effect of modal overlap on measurement. Two ways of methods are tested. One is the way described in ISO standards which enables controlling the room modes of receiving rooms, the other is the way which enables to get more precise spatial averages in receiving rooms with room modes. It is not easy maintaining the reverberation time of low frequency bands in the range between 1s and 2s, though it is proven to be effective controlling the room modes with base traps. Space-time average SPL's through combinations of rotating microphones are easy to measure, and have good consistencies with average SPL of entire receiving room.

In this paper, we have measured the fundamental properties of chime stone for Pyeongyeong. The properties are measured by wave propagation in the stone without destroying the stones, the measured properties are the chime stone density, natural frequencies of extensional wave and bending wave, and Young's modulus which is calculated by the measured properties. To find a value for Young's modulus, the fundamental frequencies which are obtained through spectrum analysis of extensional wave and bending wave are used. We calculated Young's modulus of chime stone by theoretical study and measurement on extensional wave and bending wave of the beam. As a result, we obtained Young's modulus by the fundamental frequencies of extensional wave and bending wave which deviation is within 2%.

In measurements of the vibration of structures underwater with a laser Doppler vibrometer, the surface vibration is measured by means of detecting the phase change of the laser beam due to the structural vibration. The laser beam passes through the sound field radiated from the vibrating structures underwater. It experiences an additional phase change due to the change in refractive index in the radiated sound field. This phase change due to the sound field may cause the error in surface vibration measurements. In this paper, this phase change due to the radiated sound filed has been analyzed. The numerical simulation has been peformed to evaluate the phase change in sound field radiated from an infinite cylindrical structure vibrating underwater.

In this paper, radiation characteristics of the beating sound are analytically investigated on a slightly asymmetric cylindrical shell. The cylindrical shell isan efficient model to consider the beat characteristics of Korean bells. Slight asymmetry in Korean bells makes mode pair which has close frequency components and the interaction of each mode pair produces beating sound. Based on the analytical model, the radiated sound field is determined. Using the sound beat map, the beating sound vs. direction and distance is investigated. Finally, results of the theoretical method are compared with those of the boundary element method to verify the validity.

In this paper, we propose a MWF-PMC noise processing method which enhances the input speech by using Mel-warped Wiener Filtering (MWF) at pre-processing stage and compensates the recognition model by using PMC (Parallel Model Combination) at post-processing stage for speech recognition in noisy environments. The PMC uses the residual noise extracted from the silence region of enhanced speech at pre-processing stage to compensate the clean speech model and thus this method is considered to improve the performance of speech recognition in noisy environments. For recognition experiments we dew.-sampled KLE PBW (Phoneme Balanced Words) 452 word speech data to 8kHz and made 5 different SNR levels of noisy speech, i.e., 0dB. 5dB, 10dB, 15dB and 20dB, by adding Subway, Car and Exhibition noise to clean speech. From the recognition results, we could confirm the effectiveness of the proposed MWF-PMC method by obtaining the improved recognition performances over all compared with the existing combined methods.

This paper presents a method of quantization to extract quantization parameters using the straight-line and DCT (Discrete Cosine Transform) for two splited frequency bands. As the number of harmonic is variable frame to frame, harmonics in low frequency band is oversampled to fix the dimension and straight-lines present a spectral envelope, then the discontinuous points of straight-lines in low frequency is sent to quantizer. Thus, extraction of quantization parameters using the straight-line provides a fixed dimension. Harmonics in high frequency use variable DCT to obtain quantization parameters and this paper proposes a method of quantization combining the straight-line with DCT. The measurement (If proposed method of quantization uses spectral distortion (SD) for spectral magnitudes. As a result, The proposed method of quantization improved 0.3dB in term of SD better than HVXC.

To create 3D sound, we usually use two methods which are two channels or multichannel sound systems. Because of cost and space problems, we prefer two channel sound system to multi-channel. Using a headphone or two speakers, the most typical method to create 3D sound effects is a technology of head related transfer function (HRTF) which contains the information that sound arrives from a sound source to the ears of the listener. But it causes a problem to localize a sound source around a certain places which is called cone-of-confusion. In this paper, we proposed the new algorithm to reduce the confusion of sound image localization. HRTF grouping and psychoacoustics theory are used to boost the spectral cue with spectrum difference among each directions. Informal listening tests show that the proposed method improves the front-back sound localization characteristics much better than conventional methods.
