The Computational Methods Group at Department of Engineering, Aarhus University, Denmark, has developed the software GroundVib 1.0 which is intended for easy preliminary assessment of the transmission loss related to ground vibration in layered soil. Assuming a stochastic model for the soil properties, Monto Carlo simulation is used to determine the mean value and quantile values for the transmission loss at selected position in or on the ground. Likewise, the load can be placed in or on the ground. The program allows easy definition of the stratification as well as the load and observation points.
You can download the program by clicking the figure below. Full HD or higher screen resolution is required. If you do not have MATLAB Runtime on your computer, it will automatically be downloaded and installed as part of the process. Note that this will take up about 1 GB of storage space on your hard drive.
Feel free to test and use the program for as long as you like and for whatever purpose you like. Feedback is welcome! Also, note that the code is work in progress and that new versions will be available by download using the same link. New versions will simply install on top of the old version, so it is unnecessary to uninstall the old version before installing the new ones. However, at some stage it may be necessary to upgrade MATLAB Runtime. Please note that the program currently only supports full HD or higher resolution.
