The capability of shear horizontal (SH) guided waves, to evaluate geometrical imperfections in a bonding layer, is investigated. SH waves are used in a three-layer structure in which the adhesive layer has variable thickness. It is proven that the SH...

Prosody facilitates perceptual segmentation of the speech stream into a sequence of words and phrases. With regard to speech timing, vowel lengthening is well established as a cue to an upcoming boundary, but listeners' exploitation of consonant lengthening for segmentation has not been systematically tested in the absence of other boundary cues. In a series of artificial language learning...

Detection threshold of a sinusoidal signal masked by a broadband masker is lower when on- and off-frequency masker components have a correlated envelope, compared to a condition in which these masker components have different envelopes. This effect is commonly referred to as comodulation masking release (CMR). The present study investigated if there is a CMR in the absence of a masker component at the signal frequency, i.e., in an off-frequency masking paradigm. Thresholds were measured for a 500-Hz signal in the presence of a broadband masker with a spectral notch at the signal frequency...
