AbstractTraffic-induced vibrations are a frequent problem with buildings. When a heavy vehicle such as a bus or a truck strikes an irregularity in a road surface, an impact load is generated which, in turn, gives rise to vibrations that travel through the soil. Soil - particularly its type and stratification - is but one factor influencing the transmission of vibrations. They are usually worst in areas underlain by a thick but soft clay soil layer. Vibrations rarely cause direct damage and are actually more of an annoyance for homeowners than anything else. For activities that require a vibration-free work area, structures can be built that absorb traffic-induced vibrations.
