Vibrational Modes of Trumpet Bells
We report on an investigation of the normal modes of vibration of the bells of several modern trumpets. We describe the results of experiments using electronic speckle-pattern interferometry to visualize the modal structure and we show that the mode frequencies follow a generalized version of Chladni's law.
