A new approach to floor vibration analysis


By Raed A. Tolaymat, PE


Floor vibration analysis is one of few structural engineering topics that combine static and dynamic analyses, which makes it more interesting as well as more complicated. The subject is becoming increasingly familiar to structural designers as more and more lightweight floors exhibit varying degrees of floor vibration susceptibility. In the past, literature on floor vibration analysis and ways to predict and prevent it were lacking. During the past 20 years, however, several methods have been developed to predict the susceptibility of floors to annoying transient and steady-state vibrations.
