The subject of earth vibrations related to construction operations is examined in perspective. Comparison of conventional demolition methods versus demolition by explosives is considered. Graphical data are presented illustrating the relative intensities of vibration from various construction equipment and sources. Finally these vibration intensities are compared to damage criteria and normal human evaluation criteria.
