Abstract

Measurements were made of a wide variety of industrially caused vibrations in the Melbourne area. The vibrations have been classified on the scale of Thoenen and Windes 9 according to the likelihood of their causing damage to buildings. Blasting of rock during excavations is the vibration most likely to cause damage; next in importance is the movement of people inside buildings. Traffic movements (including trams and trains) and machinery (except for pile-drivers) are not likely to cause damage beyond a radius of 20 or 30 ft.
