Noise and Vibration Caused by Civil Engineering Infrastructure Systems 2023

This issue is now closed for submissions.


Urban societies face the challenge of working and living in environments filled with noise and vibration caused by civil engineering infrastructure systems. Buildings often experience floor vibrations and noise caused by passing traffic, construction, or the operation of mechanical equipment, which are concerns not only for building occupants, but also for developers, designers, and researchers. Research laboratories and medical facilities conducting highly sensitive operations and manufacturing plants for nanotechnology are very prone to disruption by vibration.

All these issues have begun to be seriously considered and studied. Some of the main challenges that must be dealt with are the uncertainty and randomness of noise and vibration sources, propagation in different media, and the applicability and economy of vibration and noise control methods for different frequencies. If the impact of environmental vibration and noise cannot be properly controlled, the resulting complaints from people will also cause substantial pressure from public opinion.

This Special Issue aims to collect recent research findings in the field of environmental vibration and noise. We welcome original research and review articles that provide insight into source characteristics, control standards, propagation laws, prediction methods, and mitigation measures of vibration and noise. New mathematical and computational techniques are welcome, as are probabilistic methods that support the development and progress of solutions to vibration and noise problems.

Potential topics include but are not limited to the following:

  • Vibration and noise prediction methods and related standards
  • Propagation law and control measures of vibration and noise in civil engineering
  • Vibration and noise testing technology
  • Vibration comfort and noise annoyance
  • Evaluation of the long-term performance of vibration and noise
  • Application of new techniques in vibration and noise problems
  • New technologies for analysis, design, construction, and survey of civil engineering works
