Abstract: The three-dimensional (3D) finite element (FE) model of the human vocal tract was constructed, based on CT measurements of a subject phonating on [a:]. A special attention is given to the higher frequency range (above 3.5 Hz) where transversal modes exist between piriform sinuses (PS) and valleculae (VA) and where the higher formants can create a formant cluster known as the speaker’s or singer’s formant. Since the human ear is most sensitive to frequencies between 2 and 4 kHz concentration of sound energy in this frequency region (F4-F5) is effective for communication.
Keywords: 3D FE model; biomechanics of voice; singer’s formant
