BS 6472

British Standard 6472 is a document providing an assessment methodology for assessing the impact of vibration on people in buildings.  The standard is split in to two parts;

Part 1 deals with vibration from sources other than blasting and provides a methodology for predicting human response to vibration in buildings over the frequency range 0.5 to 80 Hz. The standard provides guidance on measuring vibration, and assessing the vibration dose value from the measured results. The standard provides guidance on the likelihood of adverse comment on vibration levels during day and night time periods, for different vibration dose values.

Part 2 of the standard deals with blast induced vibration. Guidance is given on vibration measurement procedures. Guidance is provided on acceptable vibration levels for residential, office and workshop uses. The guidance is given on levels that are likely to give a low probability of adverse comment.
