It is said that in the 1960s a quarry manager’s response to a complaint of vibration might have been to visit the complainant’s home just before a blast and theatrically balance a three-penny bit on its edge on the windowsill. If it remained upright after the blast, which it almost always did, the inference was that there were no vibration problems. read more
When undertaking civil engineering works that create vibration, for example: piling, compaction, breaking and demolition, it is good practice and may be necessary to show compliance with conditions by monitoring ground-borne vibration. This is achieved using a seismograph in order to prevent damage to structures or nuisance to people…click to read full article
