We regularly give lectures and courses on sound

Courses and lectures

We have standard courses but also specially tailor-made courses based on modules.

Basic module Sound

The basic principles of sound are discussed in this module.
The basic principles of sound are discussed in this module. You learn what sound is physically and you are made familiar with the deciBell. This module is intended for people who come into contact with sound professionally and deal with sound experts. The module is also a good preparation for the PAO course. The module takes 1 day part.

PAO-course Environmental Noise

The course deals with a wide range of aspects related to noise and vibrations that are related to possible noise and vibration nuisance.
The course deals with a wide range of aspects related to noise and vibrations that are related to possible noise and vibration nuisance. The physical backgrounds, legislation and practice are extensively discussed.

Sound and Road Course

This course has been taught for 10 years and has a lot of balance.
This course has been taught for 10 years and has a lot of balance. Various aspects of noise-reducing road surfaces are discussed in depth. With the arrival of new regulations, the course has recently been refreshed. All basic modules are included in this course. The course takes 3 days. Tailor-made courses take 2 consecutive days.

Werkshop Costs of noise-reducing wedges

As a road manager, it is often unclear what exactly the additional costs are of a low-noise road surface.
As a road manager, it is often unclear what exactly the additional costs are of a low-noise road surface. Together with a cost expert, a number of cases are treated and calculated. This workshop takes 1 day part

Basic module Sound in Specifications

With the advent of new regulations, it is not easy to write good specifications that clearly include noise requirements.
With the advent of new regulations, it is not easy to write good specifications that clearly include noise requirements. Both civil and sound technical aspects are covered in this module. This course is often combined with a project to draw up specifications based on wishes and experiences within a municipality or province. The module takes 1 day part.

Basic module Noise measurements on Road surfaces

This module deals with the ins and outs of failures on road Surfaces.
This module deals with the ins and outs of failures on road surfaces. Measurement methods are discussed and measurement accuracy and testing of specifications are also discussed. This module is intended for both road authorities and contractors who have to deal with noise measurements in their practice. The module takes 1 day part.

SOFTWARE

VANKEULEN Advies has developed a number of programs in the field of design and management.

These programs are very easy to use and give the end user a powerful tool to make global calculations that are sufficiently accurate.

ACOUSTIC ROAD MANAGEMENT

VANKEULEN advies bv has developed a new application in collaboration with dirActivity software that allows you to easily and quickly see which road surface is where, what the noise requirements are and when what has been measured.

Web-application

The application is password protected on a central server and can be accessed anywhere and at any time with any browser on a smartphone, tablet and laptop or PC. Requesting information on location is therefore simple and quick as possible. Multiple people can change this data and supplement it according to the license granted to them.

Sustainability is central

For the road manager, the application is a tool for carrying out detailed analyzes of, for example, sustainability and costs. The application is compatible with modern specifications and will therefore contribute to the application of more sustainable products, partly due to the built-in warning function for monitoring. For the producer, it helps in the search for innovations and optimisations, particularly in the area of more sustainability (lifespan) and thus achieves a smaller chance of failure.

Data, control and security

The data can only be modified by the owner of that data. Road managers can also give permission per road to the relevant road builder to view selected data. Road builders can never see data from a competitor. The entered data is constantly checked by us for consistency. In the future, the application will be expanded with other relevant data.

We can give you a one-time and free demonstration of the application at your site.

BARODAN

VANKEULEN Advies bv has developed a software package with which it is possible to calculate in a very fast and simple way how much lower a noise screen can be as a function of the road surface of a quiet road surface. The location of a screen can also be optimized with this.

This BArier ROaDA analysis (BARODAN®) package also provides an overview of the costs of the screen, road surface and total. This results in a large time saving and therefore also cost savings. The package can be used in addition to the usual calculation packages from DGMR and DirActivity.

AOT SIROTOL

VANKEULEN Advies bv has developed an Acoustic Optimization Tool (AOT) with which the noise reduction for quiet road surfaces can be calculated. This tool, SIROTOL® (SIlentROadTOoL), has already been successfully applied in the development and optimization of a large number of road types, such as:

  • Bruitville
  • Dubofalt
  • Durasilent
  • Grab
  • GROAB
  • Micropave
  • MicroStone
  • Micro-Top
  • Microville
  • Modieslab
  • Redufalt
  • Rollpave
  • SileNTPave
  • Silentfalt
  • Stil Mastiek
  • StilStone
  • StilTransport
  • uitgewassen / gegrind beton
  • VIAGRIP
  • VIA-FLOOR
  • (2-laags) ZSA
  • ZSM
  • 2-laags ZOAB
  • ZOB en ZVC

The accuracy of plus or minus 1 dB (A) is significantly better than that of existing statistical and physical models. In practice it even turns out to be an average accuracy of plus or minus 0.5 dB (A). Parameters such as gradation curve, hollow space, texture and layer thickness are included.

This model is applicable to micro coatings, concrete, ZOAB and silent element pavements. Due to the large number of noise measurements in combination with absorption and texture measurements, the model is constantly calibrated and optimized. A number of products developed with SIROTOL® have even been certified.
