Fish produce vocal sounds using their swim bladder at low frequencies. Some fishes have a very specialized shape of the swim bladder, presumably to enhance the performance of sound production and source localization. Such a tiny & efficient underwater device in source localization can be adapted into sonar sensing in ocean or lakes. In this project, we plan to understand the functional relation between the sound source localization and the swim bladder shape.
This study will include multiple sub-systems to tackle the underlying mechanism. First, we need to create an artificial swim bladder with a thin flexible membrane. Second, we will design electronic components to generate and capture sound at different locations. Third, students will learn how to use multiple high-speed cameras to reconstruct 3D vibrational modes on the swim bladder. Lastly, we will develop theoretical models to understand the acoustic mechanism on the swim bladder.
