dc.description.abstract Preservationists and historic sites managers need to be aware of the affects of excess man-made vibrations on historic structures. The purpose of this creative project is to examine those affects and identify some methods to mitigate them. To write this project, it was necessary to search through available literature identifying past research and studies on this subject. Research was culled from various sources examining the affects of vibrations on new and historic structures and are presented here in one volume.The affects of vibrations on historic structures is not a subject that is well represented in preservation or structural engineering literature. The information currently available is scattered through various sources. Thus, there is the lack of a single reference examining the affects of vibrations on historic structures. This project is meant to be used as a reference for historic preservationists, house museum curators, and historic sites managers who seek information about vibration effects and possible solutions to their vibration problem.
