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?

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
