Abstract

One of the methods of controlling vibration amplitudes at source is by adopting active isolation techniques. Trench barriers are identified as methods of isolation. This paper deals with series experimental investigation carried out on block vibration tests with active isolation trench barriers. The parameters like depth of embedment, dimensions of trench, fill material in trench etc., are studied by carrying out the block vibration test in field. The results are analysed to identify the influence of those parameters.

An Experimental Investigation on Trench Isolation Techniques for Vibration Control
