Assessment of Vibrations Generated by Structure Demolition Part II: Influences on Structural Safety and Durability

Abstract:

Article Preview

The main purpose of this paper is to evaluate the influences of construction vibration, which is generated by structure demolition, on the structural safety and stability. As presented in the companion paper, the influences of construction vibration on the surrounding environment were assessed. In this paper, another issue is concerned. For this purpose, field measurements are conducted on site. Then the obtained data, mainly the structural strain are analyzed by the presented evaluation method and compared to the allowable strength values suggested by the existing code. It is found that the ground vibrations generated by demolition construction will not cause harmful effects on the structures.
