Numerical Simulation

A major step has been made in the understanding of drums acoustics thanks to the Laboratoire de Vibration et D’ Acoustique (Vibration & acoustics lab) of the National Applied Science (INSA) engineering school in Lyon.

Two students have been modelling a snare drum with the intent of :

  1. Understanding how the air loading (coupling) was influencing the  membrane behaviour in the case of 2 membranes instruments
  2. How the venting characteristics influenced the membrane vibrations
  3. Quantifying the mechanical mobility of a snare as a function of its venting system

Congratulations to INSA LVA for those progress !
