Vibration in buildings can be caused by many different external sources, including industrial, construction and transportation activities. Vibration in buildings may also occur from internal sources (within a building structure), such as mechanical vibration sources in buildings, human activity or adjoining structures.

Noise is typically defined as unwanted or undesirable sound. The basic parameters of environmental noise that affect human subjective response are, intensity or level, frequency and variation with time.

Human Response. Because of complexities involved in human response to noise and vibration, the level of annoyance experienced by the occupants can vary widely. Under similar noise and vibration conditions different individuals may respond significantly differently.


BHATE Geosciences professionals can develop a noise and vibration monitoring program to meet your specific needs.
