Floor vibration design

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I believe it is the maximum velocity of the floor system calculated from the
maximum displacement of the floor system due to induced vibrations.  See
AISC's Steel Design Guide 11, "Floor Vibrations Due to Human Activity".
Good reading!

We have some plans that specify that the floor system shall
be designed for a "max velocity of 4000 micro-inches/sec".
What does this mean and how do you accomplish this?
