2016 Applied Sciences  
In this paper, a flexible control strategy for a synthesis model dedicated to nonlinear friction phenomena is proposed.  ...  Based on the perceptual stance that a sound is perceived as the result of an action on an object we propose a genuine source/filter synthesis approach that enables to elude physical constraints induced  ...  Acknowledgments: The first author is thankful to Simon Conan for the wide discussions and advices concerning the model implementation.  ...
