Abstract
Experimental data derived from measurements performed on a kettledrum are taken into account in order to elaborate a synthesis program based on physical knowledges. Some particularly relevant features of the kettledrum, such as the coupling between the membrane and the kettle, the nonlinearity of the mallet and the influence of the striking position are carefully investigated.
