Vibration

All structures have multiple frequencies of vibration resonance that result from factors related to their construction. Such factors include design, type of material(s), and building mass, and comprise the vibration characteristics of a specific structure. Because the natural frequencies of floors, walls, beams, and columns typically range from 10 to 60 Hz, these components can be excited into greater vibrational magnitude when located near equipment operating in a matching frequency range. A Acoustics performs Vibration Studies to identify and quantify the vibration characteristics of specific structures and structural components. We then specify methods for isolating offending mechanical equipment in order to minimize the vibration problem.
