Quarrying is the process of removing rock from the ground. This rock, or aggregate material, is then used to produce products like asphalt and cement, which is used in home, road building and other applications.
Underground mining is the process of removing rock or minerals from the ground that cannot be excavated from the surface. To remove the rock or minerals from the ground, tunnels or levels are created by blasting or drilling through the rock.
Activities such as blasting or pile driving are known to create vibrations that could potentially damage nearby homes, buildings, sewer lines or other structures. Construction activities like blasting can also cause air overpressure which produces a force of air. Continue Reading
Civil engineering projects include the construction of roads, bridges, airports, schools, hospitals, dams and other municipal buildings. The activities used throughout these projects, such as excavation or pile driving, are known to create vibrations...
Tunnels & Subways
Construction activities that take place on the surface can create vibrations that have an adverse impact on tunnels or subway systems that lie beneath jobsites. Similarly, the processes and equipment, such as blasting or tunnel boring machines (TBMs)...
Underwater construction activities can produce vibrations that travel through the water, away from the source, as shock waves. These shock waves are measured in terms of pressure and are often referred to as overpressure.
Oil & Gas Exploration
Oil and gas exploration is the search for petroleum deposits in the ground that can be harvested. One method of exploration involves producing vibrations at the surface to create a profile of the ground below.
