Technical paper: The effects of piling operations in the vicinity of computer systems

By Sue Boyle, Wimpey Environmental. This paper was first published in GE’s June 1990edition.

Computer equipment is installed in many locations where it is subject to minor vibration but usually the intensity of vibrations in the normal room environment is well below the safe limits for these systems. However, these limits can be exceeded by certain exteznal influences. The types of vibration inputs in question are those from neighbouring highway or railway traffic, construction activity (especiaQy pile driving), blasting, demolition, heavy industrial equipment, and computer operator activities.
