Profile

Katsuya Yamauchi is Associate Professor at Kyushu University, faculty of Design.
He received his Ph.D from Kyushu Institute of Design in 2004. He worked for Kyushu University as a researcher from 2004 to 2006, and worked for Nagasaki University as an Assistant Professor since 2006. He also visited Technical University Munich as a guest professor in 2010.
He joined to Department of Communication Design Science, Faculty of Design, Kyushu University in 2015.
His research interest includes environmental acoustics, noise control engineering and sound design, which are investigated through psycho-acoustical evaluation. Particularly, he has been focused on the issues concerning the sound of next generation vehicles, such as electric or hybrid electric vehicles, to discuss future road traffic and urban sound environment.

本研究では, 実際に自動車内で使われているリバース報知音をモデル化し, 「断続パターン」「基本周波数」「スペクトル構造」を系統的に変化させた刺激音を用いて印象評定実験を行い, 各要因とリバース報知音としての相応しさや音質との対応関係を明らかにした。その結果, リバース報知音として望ましいと判断される音響特性は, 基本周波数1kHz∿2kHz程度で, スペクトル重心の値が3kHzを超えないスペクトル構造, 吹鳴時間, 休止時間それぞれが500∿700ms程度の断続パターンを有...

周期的な振幅変調音(AM音)を用いて分かり易く憶え易いサイン音をデザインするための基礎研究として,音から想起される機能イメージのカテゴリ判断実験と擬音語表現の自由記述実験を行った。5Hz以下の矩形波で変調されたAM音は,終了感が強く,長音を伴った繰り返しで擬音語表現される。変調周波数15〜30HzのAM音は,呼出感が強く,擬音語表現として第2音節以降がラ行に変化して繰り返すという特徴を持つ。40Hz以上の矩形波で変調されたAM音の場合,警報感が強く,擬音語表現の第1音節に有声子音が用いられ...

分かり易く覚え易いサイン音をデザインするための基礎的知見を得るために,既存のサイン音を用いて,機能イメージに関するカテゴリ判断実験と擬音語表現を用いた自由記述表現実験を行った。機能イメージに関しては,主成分分析により「警報-操作」「報知」「呼出」「警告告知」「終了」の五つのイメージに集約した後,擬音語表現と音響的特徴との対応関係な検討した。その結果,警報感を伴う音は「ピピピピ」等に擬音語表現される繰り返しを伴う音あるいは「ブー」と表現される継続時間が長く倍音の豐富な音,操作のフィードバック...
