Theoretical investigation of effects of flow oscillations on ultrasound Doppler velocity measurements

Koseli, Volkan
Uludağ, Yusuf
Effects of flow oscillations on spectrum of Ultrasound Doppler Velocimetry (UDV) signals were investigated theoretically and numerically. A laminar pipe flow with a superimposed oscillating component was considered. Negative impact of oscillation on the ultrasound signal hence on the flow images was observed in the form of spreading of spectral ultrasound signal energy around mean component, leading to image artifacts. Both analytical and numerical results revealed the strong effect of a group of parameters including Doppler frequency, flow oscillation amplitude and frequency. Exceeding a particular value of the group, 1.45, resulted in artifacts in the flow images. Revealing the mechanisms involved in the deteriorations associated with the flow oscillations is potentially useful in UDV studies involving random flow fluctuations such as turbulence.


Dynamic Speech Spectrum Representation and Tracking Variable Number of Vocal Tract Resonance Frequencies With Time-Varying Dirichlet Process Mixture Models
Özkan, Emre; Demirekler, Muebeccel (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2009-11-01)
In this paper, we propose a new approach for dynamic speech spectrum representation and tracking vocal tract resonance (VTR) frequencies. The method involves representing the spectral density of the speech signals as a mixture of Gaussians with unknown number of components for which time-varying Dirichlet process mixture model (DPM) is utilized. In the resulting representation, the number of formants is allowed to vary in time. The paper first presents an analysis on the continuity of the formants in the sp...
Prediction of ducted diaphragm noise using a stochastic approach with adapted temporal filters
Karban, Ugur; Schram, Christophe; Sovardi, Carlo; Polifke, Wolfgang (SAGE Publications, 2019-01-01)
The noise production by ducted single- and double-diaphragm configurations is simulated using a stochastic noise generation and radiation numerical method. The importance of modeling correctly the anisotropy and temporal de-correlation is discussed, based on numerical results obtained by large eddy simulation. A new temporal filter is proposed, designed to provide the targeted spectral decay of energy in an Eulerian reference frame. An anisotropy correction is implemented using a non-linear model. The acous...
Direct identification and expansion of damping matrix for experimental-analytical hybrid modeling
Özgen, Gökhan Osman (Elsevier BV, 2007-11-20)
The theory of direct experimental identification of damping matrix based on the dynamic stiffness matrix (DSM) method is further developed in this work. Based on the relationship between the DSMs of the smaller experimental model and larger analytical model, the mathematical relationship between the damping matrices of the two models is established. Examining the relationship, two methods are developed that can be used to expand the experimental damping matrix to the size of the analytical model. Validity o...
Perturbation analysis of sheath evolution, with application to plasma source ion implantation
Bektursunova, RM; Demokan, O (IOP Publishing, 2001-02-07)
A perturbation model has been developed to describe the evolution of an expanding plasma sheath around a cathode after a high-voltage negative pulse is applied to the cathode, simulating the conditions in devices such as those used for plasma source ion implantation. The set of governing equations consists of two coupled collisionless fluid equations for ions, and Poisson's equation and Boltzmann's assumption for electrons. The time-dependent, self-consistent expressions for the potential, ion density and i...
Estimation of Articulatory Trajectories Based on Gaussian Mixture Model (GMM) With Audio-Visual Information Fusion and Dynamic Kalman Smoothing
ÖZBEK, İbrahim Yücel; Hasegawa-Johnson, Mark; Demirekler, Mübeccel (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2011-07-01)
This paper presents a detailed framework for Gaussian mixture model (GMM)-based articulatory inversion equipped with special postprocessing smoothers, and with the capability to perform audio-visual information fusion. The effects of different acoustic features on the GMM inversion performance are investigated and it is shown that the integration of various types of acoustic (and visual) features improves the performance of the articulatory inversion process. Dynamic Kalman smoothers are proposed to adapt t...
