01.19.16 | Vibrations of Reinforced Concrete Floor Systems

This presentation will assist the design professional in choosing an appropriate reinforced concrete floor system for situations where the effects from vibration must be considered. Provided will be simplified methods to determine key vibration characteristics of reinforced concrete floor systems that can be used to evaluate whether anticipated vibrations will be acceptable or not. Covered are floor systems subjected to walking and rhythmic excitations. Guidelines for sensitive equipment are also provided. Worked-out examples illustrate the use of the methods.

The presentation is based on the new CRSI publication titled Design Guide for Vibrations of Reinforced Concrete Floor Systems authored by Drs. David Fanella and Mike Mota. The guide is available at

Mike Mota, Ph.D., P.E., SECB, F.ASCE, F.ACI, is the Vice President of Engineering for the Concrete Reinforcing Steel Institute (CRSI). Mike is responsible for the Engineering Department and oversees the development of all technical publications and standards. He is an active member of several ACI (318, 318B and 318R) and ASCE (7-16) committees.
