  • Description: Mining tremors belong to so-called paraseismic sources of vibrations and can be classified as the most intensive of such type sources of surface structures vibrations, hazardous for buildings. According to the soil-structure interaction effect, the ground vibrations are modified during their transmission to foundations of building. In consequence, the differences between the records of vibrations registered on the ground next to a building and at the building foundation (simultaneously), can be significant. The paper is focused on the analysis of the differences in the approximate assessments of the harmfulness of mine-induced rockbursts on the basis of simultaneously occurring free-field vibrations next to the building, or building foundation vibrations. The analysed vibrations were induced by shocks in the Upper Silesian Coalfield (USC), one of the most seismically active area in Poland. Typical administrative, masonry, low-rise actual building was taken into account. The harmfulness of mining-induced vibrations to the building was estimated using appropriately prepared scales for this region. Results corresponding to two versions of the scales were analysed: the new proposition – Mining Seismic Intensity Scale GSIS-2017, as well as its former version – the Mining Intensity Scale GSI-GZWKW-2012. Both of the scales were considered in two versions: velocity version (basic), and acceleration version (auxiliary). It is worth mention that these scales base on the ground vibration parameters. However, for research and comparison purposes, they were applied also for building foundation vibrations.
