Design of Floors for Vibration: A New Approach

Without proper understanding of floor vibration, structures can become “bouncy” leading to unstable floors and buildings.

SCI’s guidance document Design of Floors for Vibration: A New Approach has been written to enable designers to determine the vibration response of sensitive floors with improved accuracy.

This guidance offers a comparison between BS 6472 and ISO 10137 for general structures and with specific NHS performance standards for hospitals, Health Technical Memorandum 08-01

It includes design guidance for all types of floor construction using steel members. Reference is given to recent research and measurements in a variety of buildings that have demonstrated the good quality vibration performance that can be achieved with composite floors.
