Vibration nuisance in residential properties caused by road traffic is a widespread problem. The aim of the survey described in this report was to investigate the nature of this disturbance by interviewing residents and by the measurement of noise and window vibration and traffic flow by: Road traffic. In the Netherlands, more and more speed bumps are being installed in roadways as a traffic-slowing measure. Cars that pass over speed bumps or other kind of traffic- slowing devices can trigger vibration that can damage homes and buildings, and create a nuisance for people inside the homes or buildings. Annoyance from Road Traffic Noise: A Review. In this paper the negative effects resulting from exposure to road traffic noise on people's well being is reviewed in the light of the latest published findings. Annoyance is particularly focused on, which is considered to be one of the first and most widespread reactions to environmental noise. Vibration nuisance in residential properties caused by road traffic is a widespread problem. The aim of the survey described in this report was to investigate the nature of this disturbance by interviewing residents and by the measurement of noise and window vibration and traffic flow parameters.
The relations between the physical parameters of traffic and traffic noise and the degree of vibration nuisance experienced by residents were investigated in order to derive a physical index which provided a reasonably good correlation with vibration nuisance. The different forms of nuisance caused by vibration from road traffic were also studied. NOISE SENSITIVITY IN A POPULATION SAMPLE REFERENCES 1. F. J. LANGDON Journal of Sound and Vibrat Noise nuisance caused by road traffic noise in residential areas: part I. 2. F. J. LANGDON Journal of Sound and Vibrat Noise nuisance caused by road traffic noise in residential areas: part QII. by: While traffic noise is undoubtedly a nuisance to many people, can ground-borne vibrations caused by traffic actually damage buildings? We discuss traffic induced vibration damage. Much work has been carried out where effects of intermittent disturbances causing ground-borne vibration have been studied. Traffic vibration is a common source of environmental nuisance affecting residents. This report summarises TRRL studies of the effects of these vibrations on people, buildings and equipment and includes results from other relevant investigations.
Vehicle generated ground-borne vibration is produced by reaction-forces imparted as a vehicle's wheels pass over discontinuities, such as road humps, on the road surface. The highest levels of vibration are generated by heavy vehicles. Traffic vibration is a common source of nuisance; most of the nuisance File Size: KB. All the town roads surveyed were "a" class primary routes. Noise was measured at all sites, together with pollution levels and vibration. Five main nuisance factors were identified: danger and difficulty (mainly for pedestrians), noise, vibration, dust and dirt, smoke and fumes. Traffic effects on people's behaviour were also investigated. VIBRATION NUISANCE FROM ROAD TRAFFIC AT FOURTEEN RESIDENTIAL SITES MSTMCT This report describes a combined social and physical measurement survey which investigated the traffic vibration nuisance experienced by people in residential roads. hterviews with residents, and measurements of noise and traffic were carried out at 14 sites in hndon. Traffic-induced vibrations. The impact on buildings and people paper is to analyze the example of the family house located near a major road with heavy traffic. First, the details concerning.
