AbstractThis report describes a series of experiments conducted as a result of complaints received from property owners in the City of Winnipeg. These owners stated that, in some cases, damage had resulted to their property due to the vibrations resulting from trolley buses which have recently been introduced in the City. These vibrations were attributed to various different reasons such as speed and weight of the buses, thickness of road bed and condition of road surface. Methods are described whereby the effects of these various causes were separated, and recommendations are made for the reduction of the vibrations.
