You raised a valid concern about vibration. Theoretically the slab system has a frequency of around 3 Hz. However, being a dormitory building floor slab, there are many non-structural partition walls running floor-to-floor height and the vibration will be greatly mitigated.


If (when) the slabs deflect what happens to the interior walls resting on them?
