When dealing with historical buildings, it becomes necessary to go beyond regular seismograph monitoring to protect older and more sensitive buildings.
One of the newer methods we use to help evaluate the response characteristics of historical buildings to vibrations, is to install Wi-Fi connected digital displacement sensors to record long term crack displacements from vibrations, temperature, and humidity variations.
The most used and applied guideline for protecting buildings from vibrations, is report RI-8507, published in 1980 by the former U.S. Bureau of Mines. However, this report did not take into account the more sensitive historical structures.
