Building vibration: mechanical systems vibration isolation

Machine vibration isolation schemes fail for all kinds of reasons, ranging from conceptual problems to bad hardware selections to poor installation. So, how can you tell if mechanical systems' isolators are working? A formal test is expensive and requires a lot of planning and coordination. Here, Vibrasure has produced a video on a easy way to tell if the isolators are working.

Floor vibration: here's what different walker speeds look like

A Vibrasure produced video on floor vibration and walker speed. It turns out that pace is by far the most-important parameter in predicting walker-generated floor vibrations. So, how fast do people really walk in buildings, anyway?
