Abstract

The design procedure and the measurements of foundation vibrations at two compressor stations are presented. Simple methods and models were used to predict machine foundation behavior-and it is shown that they were effective in estimating the expected range of amplitudes through simple parameter variation. In attempt to lower vibrations amplitudes, spreading of gravel layer under machine foundation was suggested, the effect of which is discussed in the paper.

Analysis and Measurement of Foundation Vibrations at Two Compressor Stations in Yugoslavia

The design procedure and the measurements of foundation vibrations at two compressor stations are presented. Simple methods and models were used to predict machine foundation behavior-and it is shown that they were effective in estimating the expected range of amplitudes through simple parameter variation. In attempt to lower vibrations amplitudes, spreading of gravel layer under machine foundation was suggested, the effect of which is discussed in the paper.
