I’m a PhD student working on the simulation of brass instrument acoustics as part of the NeSS project. My main work focusses on using finite-difference methods to simulate wave propagation in an instrument bore. Aims of the brass instrument project involve the modelling of : visco-thermal and radiation energy losses, varying bore profiles using slides and valves, nonlinear wave propagation and coupling of lip models to the instrument.
