Soundscape Engineering provides measurement services to assess ground-borne and building structure-borne vibration.
We measure vibration generated by transportation, machinery, and people. We evaluate vibration levels to support siting decisions for high-resolution imaging equipment to be located in hospitals and research laboratories.
For vibration sensitive laboratory and imaging equipment we can evaluate vibration with respect to the generic NIST and Vibration Criteria (VC) curves and with respect to equipment manufacturers' specific requirements.
We measure vibration levels to assess complaints about impact on human comfort, evaluating results against standards such as the following:
- ANSI S3.29 Guide to the Evaluation of Human Exposure to Vibration in Buildings
- ISO 2631-2 Mechanical vibration and shock - Evaluation of human exposure to whole-body vibration - Part 2: Vibration in buildings (1 Hz to 80 Hz)
