Ground-borne vibrations from civil engineering, blasting or traffic often cause noticeable vibrations in buildings. Householders are occasionally worried that vibrations might damage their property and this can be a significant cause of distress. Guidance levels for damage from ground-borne vibration were introduced in two British Standards in 1992 and 1993. This Digest gives information on the current UK position (1995) concerning damage to buildings. 8 pages.
