To test how resistant buildings, structures and building components are to shocks or vibrations, special tests are necessary. TNO Built Environment and Geosciences can perform dynamic tests in a specially equipped laboratory and on site.
In both an internal and external environment shocks and vibrations occur that result in disruption or damage. This may be an incidental collision, tremors or pile-driving as well as slow-moving trains, heavy vehicles or vehicles driving over speed ramps. It might then be advisable to establish in advance whether a structure can withstand certain types of vibration. Our calculations or tests are able to establish the levels and causes of vibrations. We can also advise on potential counter measures.
