RE: Floor Vibration Serviceability Constraints

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
The only software we use for floor vibrations is RamBeam.  However, this
program is limited to composite floors using concrete deck and steel
beams.  The vibration analysis used is Murray's Method (I do not know if
it is in accordance with AISC/CISC #11).

Does anyone out there use software to analyze floor systems in
accordance with AISC/CISC #11 Floor Vibrations due to Human Activity?

If so which program, and do you feel it justifies the cost versus the
old calculator and pencil methods?
