Traffic-induced ground motion and vibrations
#3
Like most vibration problems, traffic vibrations can be characterized by a source- path receiver scenario.

Vibration amplitudes and the predominant frequencies are influenced significantly by the soil type and stratification. The lower the stiffness and damping of the soil, the higher the vibration. For impact loads, ground vibrations are highest at the natural frequencies of the site. At these frequencies, the soil, like any structural system, offers the least resistance and hence the greatest response to loads. For soils, the natural frequencies depend on stiffness and stratification.
