Abstract

In August, 1947 the Bureau was requested by the Clifton Brick and Tile Company to carry out vibration tests on that Company's brick pit at Preston, Victoria. Tests were carried out at the brick pit on December 17th, 1947 and February 2nd, 1948 by officers of the Bureau. Six charges of explosives were detonated at different points in the brick pit and the amplitude of the ground movement was recorded. Additional records were made of ground movement due to other causes, such as vehicular traffic on a public road-way adjacent to the brick pit. It is the purpose of this report to summarise the results of the tests by tabulating the vertical ground movement recorded and to compare one with another, the amplitude due to different causes.
