Calculation of construction and building vibrations according to to M. Achmus, J. Kaiser and F. tom Wörden


  • Theoretical basis taken from Bulletin No. 61 (IGBE, University of Hannover)
  • Selection of type of vibration-generating equipment (e.g. vibrating pile driver, diesel hammer, drop hammer, vibrating plate, vibratory roller or deep vibrator)
  • Expandable equipment database for a wide variety of equipment types
  • Equipment data may be entered by hand  or adopted from the database by the program
  • Differentiation between ramming and compaction/densification
  • Consideration of type of building
  • Consideration of various soil types
  • Evaluation of vibration variables
  • Diagram of the footing vibration velocity based on distance from the vibration source
  • Analysis data and results displayed in a legend 
  • Prognosis support of required distance from ramming position for the control and verification of ramming effects
  • User-definable positioning and sizing of individual graphics elements and legends
  • Print or copy screen sections, e.g. for transfer to a word processor
  • Integrated Mini-CAD system for additional annotation of graphics
