STUDY OF THE MEASURES TO ADOPT IN THE CONSTRUCTION OF BUILDINGS IN THE VICINITY OF OR ABOVE RAILWAY TRACKS OR TRAFFIC LANES

ETUDE DES DISPOSITIONS A ADOPTER POUR LA CONSTRUCTION DES BATIMENTS, DANS LE VOISINAGE OU AN DESSUS DES VOIES DE CIRCULATION FERROVIATRE OU ROUTIERE

After listing the solutions adopted in various countries for protecting buildings against vibrations propagated through the ground by rail traffic, the author describes the difficulties met in judging objectively the actual efficacy of these solutions. The results of a simplified theoretical study for an imaginary 11-storey building are outlined, the method and apparatus used to measure the dynamic characteristics of insulating devices under high static pressures in the 15-600 HZ frequency band are described, and results obtained on 4 types of insulators are given. /TRRL/
