Urban densification, despite the economic and social opportunities it offers, bringswith it challenges to the well-being of citizens. A direct effect of densification is the rise in noise-and vibration-producing sources, which can lead to both health and comfort issues. In deter-mining the risk associated with excessive vibration levels, the distance between the source andthe receiver or target building, the ground properties, and the building type, are all importantfactors. In this paper, we are concerned with the effect that adjacent buildings have on the pre-diction of the vibration levels in a residential building, caused by external ground surface loads.The parametric studies were conducted using a coupled finite element model of the ground andthe buildings. The analyses were conducted in the frequency domain, and vibrational velocitylevels were computed at the receiver building in order to assess how building adjacency affectsthe receiving building’s vibrational response.
