Building vibration due to road traffic

Building vibration caused by road traffic

Vibration induced by heavy road traffic cause vibration and shaking to 5-story building, locating on the soft soil layer of Chao phraya River basin, which lower stiffness and damping amplify the vibration, thus, each floor acceleration was monitored in real time by accelerometers. As a result, building was evaluated by Human comfort level, Floor acceleration guidelines and criteria as well as floor drift and building drift in general.
