2008-2009 Report: Test House in Franklin, WI

Public Deposited

Cosmetic and structural cracks are a large concern for homeowners. Although these cracks can develop from a variety of causes: differential foundation settlement, occupant activity, climatological effects, as well as dynamic events, people tend to look to dynamic events like blasting, construction, or traffic vibrations to be the culprit. This report aims to assuage the concerns about blasting vibrations near a residential structure in suburban Wisconsin by comparing crack responses caused by weather fronts to those caused by ground motions.
