This paper presents a field test of the semi-empirical model ENVIB-01 in predicting train-induced ground vibrations. The model is meant to be used in an early design phase when the major concern is to locate areas with heightening risk of excessive ground motion or before allowing operators to increase speed and/or load. ENVIB-01 is easy to use and can quickly produce prediction of ground motion at the railway embankment and in the vicinity of the track. Measurements at one site are here presented and the results from the embankment and at distances of up to 30 m from the track are compared to a prediction achieved with the model.
