Paper Abstract

One of the basic problems when designing a new production facility or planning an expansion of a current facility, is the lack of a serious attempt to consider the detrimental effects of natural and/or induced ground vibrations. These unnoticed disturbances, which are always present, usually become apparent when the facility is completed and in active use. Control of these harmful or distracting vibrations in factories, buildings, hi-tech assembly areas, and laboratories, is most cost-effective when planned in the advanced or architectural stages. Afterthoughts or quick fixes have proven to be most expensive while being marginally effective at best.
