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
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 www.crsi.org
