A long-term monitoring project, with 12 months of continuous operation time, is described where the sound sources within a large industrial area as well as the sound levels in the nearby residential area are measured. The sources in the industrial area may give rise to complaints from the neighboring residential areas, at several kilometers...

Source localization using microphone arrays has now become common practice for many applications. Their application for long term monitoring of industrial noise nevertheless remains uncommon. Hence, in 2016 we deployed four microphone arrays near a large industrial area for a period of 12 months and explored the challenges involved. The...

An increase in public awareness of noise pollution and the impact of noise on human health has led to the need for enhanced insight in complex noise situations. This insight is commonly obtained either by brief measurements or by evaluation of a simplified acoustic model. Both of these approaches however have limitations in complex noise...

Acoustic signatures make naval platforms susceptible to detection by threat sensors. The variable operational conditions and lifespan of a platform cause variations in the acoustic signature. To deal with these variations, a real time signature monitoring capability is being developed, with advisory tools for signature management. Such a...

The last decade has shown a growing number and wide variety of systems for monitoring environmental noise. This ongoing development is made possible by the availability of cheaper and smaller hardware and innovations in communication networks. The developments are fed by a growing interest in monitoring because it can help in improving noise...

The amount of infrastructure assets such as bridges, process installations and off-shore wind turbines is increasing, accompanied by a rising need for advanced maintenance strategies to reduce inspection and maintenance costs. These maintenance strategies require reliable maintenance status information. Vibration sensing can supply added value...

Developments in systems for monitoring environmental noise have made it possible to monitor the acoustic situation within large urban areas. The developments in hardware size and costs, combined with the developments in wireless communication allow to deploy networks with many acoustic sensors without much effort. An application of such a sensor...

Acoustic monitoring using a sensor network is a powerful instrument to assess and manage complex noise situations. It can provide a basis to identify appropriate and cost effective measures, and to assess their effect by comparing before and after implementation. It can also be an instrument for communication and policy making. However, the...

Assessment of the condition of a structure in operation and subsequently its remaining maintenance free service time, is of increasing importance for various fields of engineering. The main drivers for this are cost effectiveness, increased system reliability, system safety and reduced environmental impact. The current generation of monitoring...

Recent developments in acoustic monitoring systems make it possible to measure complex noise situations, like urban traffic noise, continuously. Monitoring provides more insight in the noise situation, from which more specific and (cost) effective measures can be taken. Monitoring also allows direct evaluation of the effect of mitigation, or to...

A model based monitoring system is applied on a local scale in an urban area to obtain a better understanding of the traffic noise situation. The system consists of a scalable sensor network and an engineering model. A better understanding is needed to take appropriate and cost efficient measures, especially when changes to the local...

Urban traffic noise can be a major issue for people and (local) governments. On a local scale the use of measurements is increasing, especially when measures or changes to the local infrastructure are proposed. However, measuring (only) urban traffic noise is a challenging task. By using a model based monitoring system, consisting of a scalable...

A good understanding of the acoustic environment due to traffic in urban areas is very important and can be obtained by long term model based monitoring within large areas. As a result one has a good basis for assessing the effect of mitigating measures and for communication and policy making. A monitoring approach has been developed, based on...

In order to have a good understanding of the environmental acoustic effects of traffic it is important to perform long term monitoring within large areas. With traditional monitoring approaches this is quite unfeasible and the costs are relatively high. Within TNO a new wireless monitoring approach has been developed which is based on low cost...

An acoustic vector sensor array consists of multiple sound pressure microphones and particle velocity sensors. A pressure microphone usually has an omni-directional response, yet a particle velocity sensor is directional. Currently, acoustic vector sensor arrays are under investigation for far field source localization and visualization. One of...

Calibration of acoustic particle velocity sensors is still difficult due to the lack of standardized sensors to compare with. Recently it is shown by Jacobsen and Jaud [J. Acoust. Soc. Am. 120, 830-837 (2006)] that it is possible to calibrate a sound pressure and particle velocity sensor in free field conditions at higher frequencies. This is...
