Abstract

In-filled concrete and soil-bentonite trenches have been used in practice for many years as wave barriers to reduce transmission of moderate to high frequency ground vibrations generated by machine foundations or traffic. An experimental investigation on the influence of various geometrical and material parameters on vibration screening effectiveness of in-filled barriers has been conducted. The experimental data are compared with numerical (BEM) Solutions as well as with design formulas of Ahmad and Al-Hussaini (1991).

Experimental and Numerical Investigation on Vibration Screening by In-Filled Trenches

St. Louis, Missouri

In-filled concrete and soil-bentonite trenches have been used in practice for many years as wave barriers to reduce transmission of moderate to high frequency ground vibrations generated by machine foundations or traffic. An experimental investigation on the influence of various geometrical and material parameters on vibration screening effectiveness of in-filled barriers has been conducted.
