Vibration control for Helvetia Tower

The Helvetia Tower is a residential and commercial building that is being built near to a heavily used rail line in Pratteln. Gruner has been commissioned to propose a cost-effective vibration control system to suit the prevailing conditions. This system will ensure that future residents and users of the Helvetia Tower  are not exposed to excessive levels of vibration.

The specialists assigned with the task completed it by carrying out system identification based on vibration measurements in the excavations, developing a dynamic finite element model, subsequently computing the most suitable vibration control system and finally preparing a forecast of vibration levels. While vibrations cannot be prevented, their impact will be substantially reduced.
