Ground-borne noise and vibration in buildings has become an important matter of concern in crowded cities, due to the pressure to build ever closer to urban railways. Base-isolation has been used since the late ‘60s as a possible measure to reduce vibration and re-radiated noise in buildings. Questions remain about the selection of bearing type and how to evaluate isolation performance.
