The Application of Fuzzy Logic Inference in Construction Vibration Risk Prediction
Construction induced vibration may cause damage of buildings, disturbance of occupants, and sensitive equipments in buildings surrounding a construction site. The prediction of the construction vibration risk is essential for making decisions before the determination of construction method. Previous methods focus on the prediction based on quantitative analysis. The framework of a new method using fuzzy logic to predict the construction vibration risk is proposed in this paper. This method integrates the knowledge and experience from experts and simulates the inference process of human brain using Mamdani fuzzy inference principle. It is a convenient and economical method when used to provide support for project manager making decisions in primary phase of project.
