Ninth-Century Artifacts to Be Protected from Construction Vibration

As I See It: Remember the DEW Line? The Evolution of Ground-Level Vibration Criteria from the Cold War Years to the Era of Nanoelectronics
Most of my graduate students today do not know about the DEW (Distant Early Warning) Line that was the cornerstone of the United States' air defense arsenal during the Cold War (1947-1991). The DEW Line...

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,...

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...
