Floor Vibration Design Procedure for Concrete Frame Buildings

Floor Vibration Design Procedure for Concrete Frame Buildings

Floor Vibration Design Procedure for Concrete Frame Buildings

(OP)
I am looking for a design procedure/guide for analyzing concrete floor systems for vibration due to human activity. I have a floor space that has a strict floor vibration criteria such as a velocity sensitivity of 2000 microinch/sec and a structural criterion factor of 6,400 Kfn. I have not been able to find a design guide for concrete like AICS's Series 11 for steel frames. Does anyone know of such a parallel design guide/procedure for concrete?

RE: Floor Vibration Design Procedure for Concrete Frame Buildings

Suggest that you post this in the Structural Engineers Forum.

RE: Floor Vibration Design Procedure for Concrete Frame Buildings

I'm not aware of a guide similar to AISC's for concrete floors.  Because of their mass, vibration is not usually a consideration for concrete floors unless you have long spans.  One reference is "Vibrations of Concrete Structures", ACI Publication SP-60.

Lets start with the following site:
www.nrc.ca/irc/practice/gen4_E.html
& than the National Building code of Canada

RE: Floor Vibration Design Procedure for Concrete Frame Buildings

Another source of information is ATC Design Guide 1, Minimizing Floor Vibration.  See www.atcouncil.org

eBook - Mastering Tolerances for Machined Parts
When making CNC machined parts, mastering tolerances can be challenging. Are general tolerances good enough? When does it make sense to call out for tighter tolerances? Do you need a better understanding of fits, datums, or GD&T? Learn about these topics and more in Xometry's new e-book. Download Now
eBook – How to Choose the Correct Corrosion Testing Method
When designing a metal component, engineers have to consider how susceptible certain alloys are to corrosion in the final product’s operating environment. In a recent study by NACE (National Association of Corrosion Engineers), it was estimated that the direct and indirect costs of corrosion in the United States is approximately 6.2% of the GDP. In 2016, that cost exceeded $1 trillion dollars for the first time. Download Now
