Abstract

This article describes the possibility of using prognostic equations and the theory of fuzzy logic to predict the intensity of vibrations resulting from the use of construction machinery and heavy traffic. Vibrations from construction machinery can be particularly dangerous if they affect heritage buildings. By analyzing the measured results of vibrations at various facilities, we found that using the theory of fuzzy logic and appropriate modeling we can well predict the intensity of vibration caused by heavy traffic and vibration compaction with vibratory rollers.
