In the industry segment meteo information is essential for safe operation. To deal with emergencies, accurate real-time information on wind conditions (direction and speed) is crucial. In some cases we feed this data directly into safety applications which models and predicts the progression of released gas clouds.

Vibration is simply defined as the variation of an object about a fixed position. To properly define and quantify the physical characteristics of vibration, however, is much more complex - account must be taken of the direction, frequency and magnitude of vibration. Then, what properties should be measured? Is it appropriate to measure the displacement of the vibrating object as a measure of its amplitude, or should we instead measure velocity, or acceleration? What are the conventions for measuring direction, and is it really important?

The control of a dam requires a wide range of important information coming from the sensors, which are of vital importance for the life of a dam. Engineers in charge can take specific and sudden decisions for a correct control of a dam`s reservoir, body and foundations. However, monitoring is not only carried out by sensors, but it also involves direct or remote visual inspection as well as topographical measuring.

Workplace noise monitoring is an interesting subject that can appear complex, but it is always worth remembering what you are trying to achieve. This can be summarised as: ““Minimising or avoiding the risk of noise-induced hearing loss in the workplace to comply with local, noise-based, legislation”” Such legislation is usually based on a European Directive that is then modified to suit the needs of each particular country. For example, in the United Kingdom, the ‘The Control of Noise at Work Regulations 2005’ are based on the European Union Directive 2003/10/EC; usually called “The physical agents (noise)” directive and expanded upon by the Health & Safety Executive.
