The vibration resistance of young and early-age concrete

Anders Ansell, Postdoctoral fellow, Department of Civil and Architectural Engineering, Royal Institute of Technology (KTH), Stockholm, Sweden
Johan Silfwerbrand, Director, Swedish Cement and Concrete Research Institute (CBI), Stockholm, Sweden

During early age, concrete is vulnerable to disturbance from vibrations of large magnitudes. Today, conservative vibration limits are used as standards, and guidelines provide little information. The literature cited in this study contains experiences and results from the construction and civil engineering field, in-situ testing, laboratory testing and computer modelling. On the basis of the reviewed literature, recommended maximum vibration levels for young and early-age concrete are given.
