Open office space layouts and the desire for maximum leasable
space with minimal intrusion by columns tend to produce structures with a
greater tendency to exhibit in-service vibration problems, usually from
walking-induced vibration produced by the building’s occupants. In the
high-technology sector, increasing medical scanner sensitivity and increasing precision
of manufacturing equipment place higher demand for “vibration-free” structures.
Unlike structural design for strength and safety, vibration performance does
not benefit from decades of full-scale laboratory testing, established
time-tested procedures, and generous factors of safety prescribed by the
Building Code. Vibration performance is assessed under “in-service” conditions
where non-structural components, actual, rather than idealized, structural
behavior, and human perception have a significant effect on vibration
performance. The uncertainty in vibration analysis and design of real-world
structures presents unique challenges for consulting structural engineering
firms and how they conduct business within the firm and externally with clients
and building owner/management.
