We also describe an experimental approach that allows researchers to estimate the resonance characteristic of both types of filters. Three types of sound sources are used to test a resonator: a swept sine wave, a broadband noise, and an impulse. They can be played as an input to “excite” the resonator, and the output can be recorded. The ratio of the output over the input sound provides an image of the filter’s resonance characteristics. A computational approach permits researchers to numerically predict the resonance properties of the filter based on the geometrical dimensions of the filter. The computational approach provides a reasonably accurate prediction of the resonance characteristics of both types of filters. Finally, we apply these concepts to biological systems focusing on human speech production.
