Impact of floor vibration on the performance of buildings

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

The impact of floor vibration on the performance of the buildings was analyzed. The importance of the floor vibration limit state to the utility and function of a building was presented. The importance of non-structural elements, such as walls, and the dramatic effects of resonance on dynamic amplitudes were also illustrated. The dynamic properties of a floor system are highly correlated with the span length, member depths, slab thickness and the presence of non-structural elements. Architectural features, particularly nonstructural walls, have a dramatic effect on the vibration behavior caused by walking excitation. To provide a reasonable quantification of the expected excitation, the activities expected must be well defined.
