Today, noise and vibrations are a constant companion to humans. This is why the topic of shock protection is becoming increasingly important:
- Railway lines and built-up areas are moving closer together
- the building density continues to increase
- the speed and frequency of rail travel is increasing worldwide
The resulting vibrations have an increasingly noticeable effect on the quality of life and work of humans, but also on machines and materials. At this seminar, the participants learned what experts can do to prevent undesired shocks and vibrations. This was also made clear from the feedback forms distributed after the seminar: "As a municipal utility, we also take on tasks in local transport planning. It was therefore extremely helpful for us to be taught the basics of vibration insulation on the one hand and possible protective measures against traffic-related vibrations on the other," said one participant.
A total of 42 participants - from transport companies, engineering offices, project developers and experts - travelled from Germany, Austria and Switzerland. "For me as a planner, the practical communication of the legal framework was important. If you know what needs to be checked with regard to vibrations, you can also ensure that a new railway line does not unnecessarily bother residents with vibrations. The seminar is a great opportunity for further practical training", was the conclusion of another participant.
PS: This event is recognised by the Baden-Württemberg Chamber of Architects as a further training event in the sense of the professional code of conduct and the law governing chambers of architects and building societies.
