Transmitted vibrations from water-pipe systems, involving supports standing on a concrete slab and the underlying ground, are investigated here. The effects of varying parameters of the supports, such as location, their elastic modulus and their cross-section, on the level of vibrations transmitted by the water-pipe system are analysed in order to minimise vibrations transmitted to sensitive parts in a facility. A finite element model involving use of both finite and infinite elements was employed for analyses in the frequency domain where account was taken of both fluid-structure interaction and soil-structure interaction. It was concluded from the analyses performed that the parameters of the supports had an appreciable effect on the vibration level in the facility.
