Abstract

Local soil conditions play an important part in development of ground vibrations from machine foundations. A soil profile predominantly effects the natural frequencies of foundation vibrations. This paper presents a method for obtaining a pre-construction estimation of the natural frequency of damped vertical vibrations of foundations which will be built at a specific site for machines with dynamic loads. The method pertains principally to the relationship between foundation frequencies and the natural frequencies of the soil profiles at construction sites.

Natural Frequency of Vertical Foundation Vibrations Evaluated from In-Situ Impact Test

San Diego, California

Local soil conditions play an important part in development of ground vibrations from machine foundations. A soil profile predominantly effects the natural frequencies of foundation vibrations. This paper presents a method for obtaining a pre-construction estimation of the natural frequency of damped vertical vibrations of foundations which will be built at a specific site for machines with dynamic loads.
