Title: Damage to structures from ground-borne vibration

Ref Code: DG403

Abstract1: Ground-borne vibrations from civil engineering, blasting or traffic often cause noticeable vibrations in buildings. Householders are occasionally worried that vibrations might damage their property and this can be a significant cause of distress. Guidance levels for damage from ground-borne vibration were introduced in BS 7385 and this Digest gives information on the UK position concerning damage to buildings.
