Let’s put an acoustician on the Hill!

ASA cosponsors a Congressional Science and Engineering Fellowship with the American Institute of Physics, which enables a scientist or engineer to contribute to the legislative process.  Acoustical scientists and engineers at all career stages, including mid- and late-career professionals, are invited to apply.

NSF conducts search for the next Head of the Office of International Science and Engineering

The National Science Foundation is conducting a search for the next Head of the Office of International Science and Engineering (OISE). OISE oversees NSF's international research and education portfolio, and works closely with its disciplinary research directorates to develop an agency-wide strategy to cultivate international collaboration. Applications must be submitted by 1 December 2014. 

Noisy Planet Recognizes National Protect Your Hearing Month

In recognition of October as National Protect Your Hearing Month, the It’s a Noisy  Planet. Protect Their Hearing.® campaign, developed by  the National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders (NIDCD), National Institutes of Health, encourages you to help promote awareness of noise-induced hearing loss, the only preventable form of hearing loss.

Analytical solutions to acoustic scattering problems involving spheroids and disks have long been known and have many applications. However, these solutions require special functions that are not easily computable. Therefore, their asymptotic forms are typically used instead since they are more readily available. In this paper, these solutions are explored, and computational...

Recent studies on computational speech segregation reported improved speech intelligibility in noise when estimating and applying an ideal binary mask with supervised learning algorithms. However, an important requirement for such systems in technical applications is their robustness to acoustic conditions not considered during training. This...

The powertrain of electric vehicles generates an unfamiliar acoustical environment for customers. This paper seeks optimal interior sound for electric vehicles based on psychoacoustic knowledge and musical harmonic theory. The concept of inserting a virtual sound, which consists of the subharmonics of an existing high-frequency component, is suggested to improve sound quality. Subjective evaluation results indicate that the...
