Cylindrical Sections: Frequency-Domain Approach

No wind instrument is constructed of a perfectly uniform cylindrical pipe. However, it is possible to approximate non-uniform bore shapes with cylindrical sections, as illustrated in Fig. 10. This approach can be pursued in either the frequency- or the time-domain.
