Description - Environmental Vibrations : Prediction, Monitoring, Mitigation and Evaluation by Hirokazu Takemiya

Globally there is much interest in environmental vibrations, as caused by all forms of traffic, by construction activities and factory operations, and by other man-made sources. The focus is on prediction, control and mitigation to benefit our quality of life, and also to improve the operation of sensitive machines in high-tech production. The Japanese Geotechnical Society, the Architectural Institute of Japan, the Japanese Society of Civil Engineering and the Chinese Society for Vibration Engineering came together to organise this International Symposium on Environmental Vibrations at Okayama University, from September 20th to September 22nd, 2005. This book contains the proceedings of this meeting, recording the international exchange of experience, knowledge and research presented at the conference. Both invited and submitted papers are included, written by eminent academic professionals and engineering specialists. It includes topical areas of environmental vibrations, as well as referring to expertise and practices in related fields, these include: wave propagation in soils; soil dynamics; soil-structure dynamic interaction; field measurement of environmental vibration; monitoring of environmental vibrations; development of vibration mitigation measures; evaluation of environmental vibrations; effects of vibration on human perception; effects of vibration on high-precision machines. Both the research community and professionals in the field of environmental vibrations will find this an excellent resource.
