Mechanical Model Of The Human Ear
Journal Of The Acoustical Society Of America
Diagrams showing cutaway views of the human ear are all very well for teaching the mechanics of hearing, but a tabletop model the students can manipulate is even better. The author presents a mechanical model based upon the water-tube cochlea previously developed by Robert Keolian, but including the outer- and middle-ear components. The model allows phenomena such as the acoustic reflex, critical bands, and masking of higher-frequency by lower-frequency tones.
