Eye array sound source localization

Alghassi, Hedayat 05 1900 (has links)
Sound source localization with microphone arrays has received considerable attention as a means for the automated tracking of individuals in an enclosed space and as a necessary component of any general-purpose speech capture and automated camera pointing system. A novel computationally efficient method compared to traditional source localization techniques is proposed and is both theoretically and experimentally investigated in this research. This thesis first reviews the previous work in this area. The evolution of a new localization algorithm accompanied by an array structure for audio signal localization in three dimensional space is then presented. This method, which has similarities to the structure of the eye, consists of a novel hemispherical microphone array with microphones on the shell and one microphone in the center of the sphere. The hemispherical array provides such benefits as 3D coverage, simple signal processing and low computational complexity. The signal processing scheme utilizes parallel computation of a special and novel closeness function for each microphone direction on the shell. The closeness functions have output values that are linearly proportional to the spatial angular difference between the sound source direction and each of the shell microphone directions. Finally by choosing directions corresponding to the highest closeness function values and implementing linear weighted spatial averaging in those directions we estimate the sound source direction. The experimental tests validate the method with less than 3.10 of error in a small office room. Contrary to traditional algorithmic sound source localization techniques, the proposed method is based on parallel mathematical calculations in the time domain. Consequently, it can be easily implemented on a custom designed integrated circuit.

Tunable Surface-enhanced Raman Scattering (SERS) from nano-aperture arrays

Zhang, Xiaoqiang 30 April 2012 (has links)
Research work on fabricating organized and reproducible SERS substrates has been done in this thesis. Nano-aperture arrays with circular, bow-tie and cross bow-tie shapes were fabricated by using FIB milling. These arrays were imaged under SEM and their parameters were measured. The optical transmission properties of these arrays were measured by white light transmission. It was found that the shape of the nano-aperture could determine these arrays’ abilities to support SPR. Different shapes would give different SPR modes and generated optical transmission peaks at varied wavelengths. For nano-aperture array with identical shapes, the varied parameters, such as periodicity or tip-to-tip distances, would affect the position of the transmission peaks. Slight increase or decrease of these parameters can be manipulated to adjust the peak positions, catering to the best resonance of the excitation laser used in Raman spectroscopy. The enhancement properties of these arrays as SERS substrates were measured by Raman spectroscopy. Different SERS enhancement properties could be found across different shaped nano-aperture arrays and cross bow-tie nano-aperture arrays give the best SERS enhancement. For nano-aperture array with identical shapes, the varied parameters would affect its ability of SERS enhancement. Near field simulations were carried out in order to explain the relationship of the SERS results and these arrays’ SPR ability. Electrochemical study on these ordered nano-aperture arrays was also carried out in this thesis. / Graduate

Fluidelastic Instability of Finned Tube Bundles in Normal and Parallel Triangular Arrays

Wang, Jing 20 November 2017 (has links)
Experimental study was conducted to investigate fluidelastic instability in finned tube bundles with normal and parallel triangular arrays. Three arrays of each geometry type were studied experimentally: two arrays with serrated, helically wound finned tubes of different fin densities, and a bare tube array with the same base diameter as the finned tubes. The finned tubes under consideration were commercial finned tubes typically used in the fossil and process industries. For the purpose of the present investigation, the concept of "effective diameter" of a finned tube, as used to predict the vortex shedding, was used to compare the finned tube results with the existing bare tube world data and some theoretical predictions for fluidelastic instability. The finned tube arrays in this study have the same tube pitch and have been scaled to have the same mass ratio and tuned to have the same natural frequency. A low speed wind tunnel, Betz micro manometer and HP 35670a dynamic signal analyzer were employed to conduct the experiments. Experimental results for the triangular arrays show that the fin's structure strongly influences the fluidelastic stability of finned tube bundles and the fin pitch is demonstrated to reduce the difference in the fluidelastic instability between the tube arrangements as the fin density increases. The results also suggest that there might be an optimum fin pitch value at which the threshold reduced velocity for a finned tube array is much higher than the one for its corresponding bare tube array, due to the influence of fin geometry. In the appendix, an analytical model produces a new correlation of critical reduced velocity against mass damping parameter to predict the fluidelastic instability of tube bundles. Its predictions are in reasonable agreement with the experimental data. Since negative damping is one of the mechanisms of fluidelastic instability of a tube array, "Lift effect" was applied to explain the negative damping in an inviscid flow. An experiment is suggested to test the relationship between the pitch flow velocity and a tube velocity dependent "lift effect". Accordingly, two duct structure designs are suggested which may alleviate the negative damping by using the energy of oncoming flow to reduce the "lift effect" on the tubes. / Thesis / Master of Applied Science (MASc)
