Abstract

Two examples related to investigation of vibrations in civil engineering structures are presented. In the first example it is shown how it is possible to decrease vibration in underground structures. These vibrations are caused by train load. It is shown by the results of presented dynamic analysis that the use of special elastomer is very important in engineering practice in order to decrease structural vibrations. Second example presents the foundation for special equipment - eletronic balances, which are very sensetive, even to small displacement. Presented dynamic analysis is related to the vibrations caused by heavy traffic load in order to obtain optimum foundation solution.

Investigation of Vibration Caused by Traffic and Railway Load
