Chiba and Kajiyama measured 3D configurations of the human vocal tract and made physical models based on the measurements

Takayuki Arai

In 1930's, Chiba and Kajiyama conducted 3D measurements of the human vocal tract for the first time in history. In this paper, we first reviewed how they measured vocal-tract configurations. They further simplified the vocal-tract configurations and made physical straight models based on the simplifications. In addition to introducing our replicas of the straight models based on their simplifications, we also designed bent models based on their 3D measurements.
