Vibration measurements in building and infrastructure
In recent years, the issue of vibrations in buildings has become increasingly more important both on account of the different structural typology of modern constructions, which are slimmer and lighter, and due to the increase in the sources of vibration, particularly those generated by human activity:
Vehicle traffic, particularly rail traffic (trains, trams, undergrounds) or heavy road traffic (lorries, buses);
Fixed machinery installed in plants (hammers, presses, machine tools etc.);
Building work and road works (excavation, pile-driving, etc.).
Such sources can cause both disturbance to occupants and damage to constructions. Thanks to many years of experience and use of special instrumentation, SINT Technology can provide an extremely competent service both in analysing and evaluating disturbance and in evaluating the effects vibration causes on buildings in conformity with current international standards.
