If you don't already have it, get the Steel Joist Institute's 'Technical
Digest' No. 5 - "VIBRATION of Steel Joist-Concrete Slab Floors".

It won't tell you how to solve your problem, but it will give you some
help in analyzing the problem, and how to prevent/minimize the problem
on future projects.
