steel - vibration analysis

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

Checking vibration on steel framing for a mezzanine, I got 2 similar answers by following example 4.4 of AISC Design Guide 11 (Designing for Floor Vibrations) and the Floor Framing software from the downloadable software.  While those answers were similar, the analysis provided by FloorVibe via Ram Structural System indicated members being increased about 60% (conservatively).  Has anyone else encountered such a discrepancy?
