Can vibration levels in surrounding soils be controlled during
slurry wall excavation?

Issues that affect vibration levels include the type of soil or rock being excavated, the depth of excavation, the presence of water, the horizontal distance from the excavation to the monitoring point, and the type of excavation tool in use.  However, there is no predictable correlation between vibration levels in surrounding structures and ongoing trench excavation.  The effects of slurry trench excavation can be controlled to some extent by limiting the drop heights of the excavating tool and, in some applications, by using a hydromill.
