Ground-borne vibration can be generated by a number of sources, including road and railways, construction activities such as piling, blasting and tunneling. The parameter normally used to assess the ground vibration is the peak particle velocity (ppv) expressed in millimeters per second mm/s).
Vibration can cause varying degrees of damage in buildings and affect vibration-sensitive machinery or equipment. Vibration may also cause disturbance or annoyance for humans, and at elevated levels, it can restrict a person’s ability to work.
ABEM vibration monitoring solutions come prefigured for common applications and are optimized for monitoring of blasting and construction work.
Vibraloc is a full waveform vibration monitor with an integrated tri-axial set of geophones. An additional 4th channel allows monitoring of air-pressure from blasting using an optional externally connected microphone. Learn more
