Technique to Monitor Building ‘Health’ Utilizes Ambient Vibrations
A technique devised to monitor building health uses ambient vibrations; compressed and fused flakes of graphene are shown to have 20 times the strength of steel; and a vehicular travel lane paved with...

Ninth-Century Artifacts to Be Protected from Construction Vibration

Automated Vibration Monitoring for Construction Applications: A Retrospective and Current Practice or… Everything Is so Much Easier Now!
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...

Guidelines for Construction Vibrations: How Much Rattle is Too Much?
The study of construction/blast-related ground vibrations on structures, people, and objects is a surprisingly diverse field. Vibration sources vary from blasting, all types of construction equipment,...

A History of Deep Vibratory Methods for Ground Improvement
A Cost-Effective Foundation Solution for 80+ Years
Deep vibratory ground improvement methods, collectively referred to as vibro systems, have been utilized by the construction community in one form or another for the past 80 years. Development of the equipment,...

A Solution for Wind-Induced Vortex-Shedding Vibration of the Harmony and Heritage Platforms During Transpacific Tow
This paper describes the results of an advanced procedure for analyzing wind-induced vortex-shedding vibration (VSV) which was used for the transpacific tows of the Harmony and Heritage...
