Abstract: My career in vibration monitoring (VM) began in the late 1980s. At that time, the state of the practice was primarily focused on blasting operations, which was driven by a boom in highway construction and quarrying. VM projects other than those related to blasting were unusual. Today, however, vibration monitoring can be found on most civil construction projects and is not just for blasting anymore.
