FB2017: In-Ear Field Dosimetry

This FB2017 dataset contains “In-Ear Field Dosimetry” data acquired as part of the «Développement d’une méthode de mesure de l’exposition sonore effective intra-auriculaire pour une utilisation en milieu de travail» (H20170104) project.

“Open ear ER7C measurements (APAC)

The “Open ear ER7C measurements (APAC)” folder contains the analytical models used in the following publication :
[1] F. Bonnet, H. Nélisse, M. Nogarolli and J. Voix, “Individual in-situ calibration of in-ear noise dosimeters,” Applied Acoustics, vol. 157, Jan. 2020, doi: 10.1016/j.apacoust.2019.107015.

(Please cite this source if you intend to use this model, as well as the sources cited below.)

This model can be used to compute the acoustic pressure ratio between two known positions inside an earcanal of known dimensions. It uses the following sources as original research works:
[2] D. Mapes-Riordan, “Horn modeling with conical and cylindrical transmission line elements,” in Audio Engineering Society Convention 91, 1991.
[3] E. A. G. Shaw and M. R. Stinson, “The human external and middle ear: models and concepts,” in Mechanics of hearing, University Press., Delft: E. de Boer and M.A Viergever, 1983, pp. 3–10.

The “exemple” file contains an example of script that may be used to compute the pressure ratio between two points using the developed matlab functions and a given earcanal geometry.

TF_earcanal_modeling (APAC)

This “TF_earcanal_modeling (APAC)” folder contains the analytical model used in the following publication:
[1] F. Bonnet, H. Nélisse, M. Nogarolli and J. Voix, “Individual in-situ calibration of in-ear noise dosimeters,” Applied Acoustics, vol. 157, Jan. 2020, doi: 10.1016/j.apacoust.2019.107015.

Loudness balance results (JASA)

This “Loudness balance results (JASA)” folder contains the loudness-balance results collected on 18 human partipants, as part of the following JASA publication:
[1] F. Bonnet, H. Nélisse, and J. Voix, “Effects of ear canal occlusion on hearing sensitivity: A loudness experiment,” J. Acoust. Soc. Am., vol. 143, no. 6, pp. 3574–3582, Jun. 2018, doi: 10.1121/1.5041267.
