Abstract : A global model of a piano is presented. Its aim is to reproduce the main vibratory and acoustic phenomena involved in the generation of a piano sound from the initial blow of the hammer against the strings to the radiation from soundboard to the air. One first originality of the work is due to the string model which takes both geometrical nonlinear effects and stiffness into account. Other significant improvements are due to the combined modeling of the three main couplings between the constitutive parts of the instrument: hammer-string, string-soundboard and soundboard-air coupling.
