Underground railway traffic can emit significant levels of vibration into the soil surrounding the train tunnels. In heavily populated areas space for habitable buildings is reducing all the time as available locations are developed at an increasing rate. Many sensitive buildings are therefore built on top of or in proximity to underground railway lines, causing perceptible levels of vibration within these buildings. This vibration has the potential to disturb the occupants through tactile vibration and/or structure-borne noise or even cause cosmetic or, in extreme cases, structural damage to the building.
