Classification of sound

Infrasound waves are subsonic frequencies that are inaudible to humans. They are transmitted by structure-borne sound over solid materials and are caused by large-scale power machines. Also by earth movements, earthquakes, by wind or surf. Infrasound waves can cause structures, buildings and bridges to resonate and thus lead to their destruction.
