Re: vibrations from railroad

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I would suggest consulting with your geotechnical engineer since the
vibration characteristics are directly related to the soil types and
water table location. He or she may suggest a cutoff trench to absorb
the lateral waves. The vertical waves, however, may reflect off a
hardpan layer, if it is relatively shallow and therefore may require a
different solution.
