(Color online) Phase portrait of the amplitude displacements for the left (Y 1 L ) and right (Y 1 R ) masses throughout a phonatory cycle. The three cases presented are for 2MM (—), B-rand (- - -), and B-right (-.-).

Phase portraits of Y 1 L versus Y 1 R with ps = 1.2 kPa and = 0.53 for a) 2MM and b) B-right.
Exponents of the power-curve fits at each phase and flow rate.
Results of selected glottal and acoustic metrics of interest for symmetric (ps = 0.8 kPa and = 1.0), and symmetric (ps = 1.2 kPa and = 0.53) vocal fold tensioning. The BLEAP scheme introduces subharmonics and has a more pronounced impact on acoustical parameters for asymmetric vocal fold tensioning.
