Abstract: This paper studies the mutual energy transfer between the fluid flow, described by incompressible Navier-Stokes equations, and the elastic body represented by vocal folds. The aerodynamic energy transfer function describes the amount and more importantly the sign of the energy exchange. It determines if the vocal fold vibrations are self-excited or prescribed.The energy transfer function is studied for three different driving mechanisms introduced by different inlet boundary conditions (BC). The most frequently used inlet BCs for incompressible model of fluid flow approximated by the finite element method are either Dirichlet BC giving the inlet velocity or do-nothing type of BC prescribing the pressure difference between the inlet and the outlet. Since the numerical simulations with both aforementioned BCs do not provide results observed experimentally the newly introduced BC based on the penalization approach seems as remedy. The numerical model consists of strongly coupled partitioned scheme based on the stabilized finite element method.\n\n
