Abstract

The development and use of a preliminary assessment procedure to assess the most common office floor configurations for walking-induced vibration serviceability are discussed. The floor to be designed is comprised of six bays in one direction and three bays in the other. The assessment procedure applies to steel-framed office floors where the framing is the result of a strength design utilizing the most economical cross section. The results show that switching from lightweight to normal weight concrete improves vibration performance.
