Enhancing the durational enhancement of a tone contrast

Carlos Gussenhoven
2006 Journal of the Acoustical Society of America  
Subjected to a wide spectrum of operational and environmental loads, engineering structures exhibit first signs of material deterioration at micro and meso scales.  ...  Stable growth of the damage index was observed at an increasing number of fatigue cycles showing correlation between DI and the micro/meso scale damage accumulation.  ...  Because the data collected at sea and the results from numerical simulations are often compared in order to infer the acoustic attributes of bubbles and bubble clouds, it is important to have a good understanding  ...
