Conventional techniques for audio monitoring, including Passive Audio Monitoring (PAM), often call for the use of environmentally unsustainable and challenging equipment. This among other limitations can disrupt the very environment that is meant to be studied and may also limit the ability to observe an ecosystem in its natural state. <br/><br/...

Yu, W. (author)
We are surrounded by all kinds of sounds at all times. What we hear varies with the physical environment and our position. Room impulse responses (RIRs) characterize the effect of the environment on a sound produced by a source. A first goal of this dissertation is to analyze RIRs and investigate how to extract environmental information from...

This thesis presents an in-depth investigation of the consequences of adding a second facesheet on the aerodynamic performance of acoustic liners. This is done by performing pore-resolved Direct Numerical Simulations (DNS) of a channel flow at Reτ = 500. Simulations are conducted for various dual facesheet configurations, exploring different...

Subjective tinnitus is a sensation of sound without an external source. There is no clear understanding of the cause and pathology of tinnitus.<br/><br/>Literature suggests a combination of deafferentation of the tonotopic map , the Bayesian brain model, and the triple mode network, creating one combined hypothesis for tinnitus pathology. Based...

Franse, W.J.M. (author)
The field of quantum acoustics studies high frequency sounds generated at low temperatures such that quantum mechanical effects become relevant. The studies mainly revolves around propagating quantized sound waves, or phonons, a collective excitation of atoms in solids or liquids. In quantum acoustics, the engineering and design tools described...

Penners, Jorgi (author)
The transverse stability of timber terraced houses can be provided by CLT stability walls where decoupled timber terraced houses are preferred to meet acoustic requirements leading to rather large thicknesses for the CLT stability walls and many large connections for anchorage to the foundation. The main goal of this research was to investigate...

Distributed Acoustic Sensing (DAS) is a versatile dynamic strain sensing method that has been adopted for a wide range of seismic applications. In DAS, optical fibres are interrogated and used as sensors, where a strain or strain-rate measurement is made along a specific length of the fibre, called the gauge length. Its main appeal is the...

Detecting nearby vehicles involves utilizing data from various sensors installed on a car as it moves. Common sensors for identifying nearby vehicles include LiDAR, cameras, and RADAR. However, all of these sensors suffer from the same issue -- they cannot detect an approaching vehicle that is not yet visible. Hence, this thesis explores the...

Geothermal power production may result in significant CO2 emissions as part of the produced steam. CO2 capture, utilisation, subsurface storage (CCUS) and developments to exploit geothermal resources are focal points for future clean and renewable energy strategies. The Synergetic Utilisation of CO2 Storage Coupled with Geothermal Energy...

Underwater noise resulting from the monopile driving process can cause severe damage to marine wildlife, such as hearing injury, behavioral disturbance, or even death. Although current noise-attenuation techniques used in this process have shown a significant noise reduction at high frequency ranges, mitigating low-frequency noise is still...

Understanding students' preferences of their study place, in particular acoustical and psychosocial preferences, is important to students' health and comfort. This study aimed to identify clusters of students with similar acoustical and psychosocial preferences, and to identify reasons for certain preferences of students in each cluster. A mixed...

The accurate determination of the transfer function of ultrasound transducers is important for their design and operational performance. However, conventional methods for quantifying the transfer function, such as hydrophone measurements, radiation force balance, and pulse-echo measurements, are costly and complex due to specialized equipment...

Analyzing the impact of aircraft noise on urban areas requires specific consideration of sound propagation over long distances, which is not typically covered by tools designed for indoor acoustics. Although it is unclear to what extent existing parametric tools that combine 3D modeling and acoustic simulation can accurately replicate these...

Since the industrial revolution the ocean has become noisier. The global increase in shipping is one of the main contributors to this. In some regions, shipping contributed to an increase in ambient noise of several decibels, especially at low frequencies (10 to 100 Hz). Such an increase can have a substantial negative impact on fish,...
