Engineering Acoustics/Mechanical Modeling of the Ear

Mechanical Modeling of the EarEdit

There are three main parts of the human ear; the Outer, Middle, and Inner ear.

The Middle EarEdit

The Middle Ear is an air filled cavity that converts the mechanical energy input from the tympanic membrane into hydraulic energy. The middle ear contains three bones:
