Abstract

For pt.1 see ibid., vol.19, p.3, (1991). This is a companion paper to an experimental investigation, reported earlier, of traffic-induced vibrations at a site where several complaints were lodged by homeowners residing near a roadway. The objective of the previous paper was to investigate experimentally the factors influencing the level of these vibrations and their relative quantitative importance. The present paper reports on the results of the analytical part of the study in which the role of pavement/subbase characteristics, effectiveness of vibration screening by concrete walls and soil improvement were investigated using finite element simulations
