Minimizing Construction Vibration Effects
Harmful vibration effects of construction operations occur frequently. Ground vibrations may affect adjacent and remote structures. The level of structure vibrations depends on a number of factors such as characterized sources of vibrations, soil conditions, and susceptibility of structures. There is no unique solution to minimize the effects of construction vibrations at every site. Monitoring and control of construction vibrations are made to be in compliance with safe vibration criteria. Reasonable vibration criteria should be chosen for a site.
