AbstractExtensive measurements and detailed analysis of building vibration induced by road traffic in Montréal werecarried out for nine representative complaint sites. Vibration levels were evaluated with reference to human annoyance and the potential for building damage using existing standards. The effects of road condition and seasonal variations in soil conditions on vibration levels were also investigated using vibration measurements before and after a road was resurfaced and at different seasons. Details of test methods, measurement and analysis procedures, and the major findings of the study are presented in this paper.
