The human vocal folds are responsible for sound production during normal speech, and a study of their flow-induced vibrations can lead to improved prevention and treatment of voice disorders. However, studying the vocal folds in vivo or using excised larynges has several disadvantages. Therefore, alternatives exist using either synthetic (physical) and/or computational vocal fold models. In order to be physiologically relevant, the behavior and properties of these models must reasonably match those of the human vocal folds.
