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...

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...

A good understanding of the acoustic environment due to traffic in urban areas is very important. Long term monitoring within large areas provides a clear insight in the actual noise situation. This is needed to take appropriate and cost efficient measures; to asses the effect of measures by comparing before and after implementation and to have...

Advanced maintenance strategies for infrastructure assets such as bridges or off shore wind turbines require actual and reliable information of the maintenance status. Structural health monitoring based on vibration sensing can help in supplying the input needed for structural health monitoring applications. However, large structures require a...

In this paper the approach for an acoustical model based monitoring network is demonstrated. This network is capable of reconstructing a noise map, based on the combination of measured sound levels and an acoustic model of the area. By pre-calculating the sound attenuation within the network the noise map can be shown in real-time. The...
