The 2.0 in./sec (50 mm/s) peak particle velocity criterion traditionally used to protect structures from construction-induced vibration damage is nonconservative for historic and sensitive older buildings. The relevant parameters which must be considered in establishing vibration criteria for historic and sensitive older buildings are examined. Existing criteria by past investigators are reviewed and a new criterion for this class of structure is recommended.
