Het Lint is een ruim 8km lang beweeglint in het Máximapark in Utrecht dat intensief wordt gebruikt om te wandelen, fietsen, skaten, hardlopen. Een groot succes dus, maar wat verklaart dit succes? Wat zijn de randvoorwaarden en ontwerpprincipes die misschien ook elders voor succesvolle toepassingen kunnen zorgen? Deze vraag stelde de gemeente...

This paper aims to review the progress within the field of the community response to noise and noise annoyance based on peer-reviewed publications in the past three years (2014 to 2017). Developments include an increased focus on local or case-specific as opposed to generalized exposure-response relationships to predict noise annoyance, as well...

An important aim of the EU-project CargoVibes was to derive exposure-response relationships for the expected annoyance due to vibration among residents living near freight railway lines. This was done based on existing survey data, as well as on some new survey data gathered within the project. To this end, a questionnaire was sent by mail to...

The aim of this paper is to present an overview of the research concerning human response to vibration conducted in the EU FP7 CargoVibes project. The European Union-funded project CargoVibes involved 10 partners from 8 nations and ran from April 2011 to April 2014. The project was concerned with railway-induced ground-borne vibration affecting...

The European Union funded project: CargoVibes involving ten partners from eight nations has aimed to examine ground-borne vibration affecting residents close to freight railway lines. The paper presents an overview of the work package investigating human response to vibration, with particular focus on physiological and psychological impact on...

Background: Ventilation in dwellings is essential for well-being and health. However, insight in determinants of ventilation behavior is still limited. Aim: Identifying determinants of ventilation behavior and quantifying relationships. Secondly, identifying households characteristics associated with low ventilation activity. Methods: In a cross...

Annoyance and sleep disturbance by road and rail traffic noise in an urban area are investigated. Noise levels Lden and Lnight are determined with an engineering noise model that is optimized for the local situation, based on local noise measurements. The noise levels are combined with responses of 71 inhabitants to an annoyance survey to derive...

WHO published the Guidelines for Community Noise in 1999 and the Night Noise Guidelines for Europe in 2009. Significant new research in the area of environmental noise and health has taken place since then. As well, new noise sources of concern for public health, such as personal electronic devices and wind turbines, were not addressed in...

The objective of the present deliverable is to describe and assess reported health impacts of vibration among residents living near railway lines, in particular the response to freight trains. To this end, first a state of the art overview is given of the results from all field studies reported so far on the evaluation of vibration from several...

Background Both the WHO and the EC recommend the use of Lnight as the primary indicator for sleep disturbance. Still, a key question for noise policy is whether the prediction of sleep quality could be improved by taking the number of events into account in addition to Lnight. Objectives The current paper investigates the association between...

In urban areas, road traffrc noise is a dominant source of environmental noise and a major cause of noise annoyance and disturbed sleep. It has been hypothesized that respondents highly exposed to noise at multiple sides of their dwelling, may be expected to be worse off than respondents with the same exposure at the most exposed side, but also...

Previous studies indicate that residents may benefit from a "quiet side" to their dwellings. The influence of the level of road traffic noise exposure at the least exposed side on road traffic noise annoyance was studied in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. Road traffic noise exposure was assessed at the most and least exposed façade (Lden,most and...

The EU-project CargoVibes aims to describe the expected annoyance due to vibration among residents living near (freight) railway lines. Compared to the state of knowledge on the annoyance response to noise, relatively little is known about the relationship between vibration exposure and annoyance. Existing evaluation criteria in use are not...

Noise is pervasive in everyday life and can cause both auditory and non-auditory health eff ects. Noise-induced hearing loss remains highly prevalent in occupational settings, and is increasingly caused by social noise exposure (eg, through personal music players). Our understanding of molecular mechanisms involved in noise-induced haircell and...

Environmental noise annoyance due to transportation noise in the home environment has been widely studied, and exposure-response relationships have been established previously for the expected percentage of annoyed residents with the most exposed façade exposure level as a determinant. However, relatively little is known about the evaluation of...

Wie aan milieuvervuiling denkt, denkt aan giflozingen, het broeikaseffect of vervuilde lucht. Maar schade door lawaai, daar hoort men niet vaak over. En dat terwijl lawaai jaarlijks duizenden gezonde levensjaren kost.

The impact of transportation noise on human health has primarily been studied in the home environment, with the facade exposure level as a determinant. However, urban residents may travel, work and recreate outdoors during many hours of the day, and outdoor noise may affect their health and wellbeing. It is hypothesized that outdoor...

Based on data from many surveys, exposure-response functions have been derived to describe the average expected annoyance response at a certain noise level. These have been used to define acceptable levels of environmental noise for separate noise sources. However, the prediction of the annoyance response in specific situations or communities...
