Mr. Kenneth Severn (F, Past President): This Code has made a noteworthy contribution in two respects.
By separating a vibration problem into two distinct parts, one concerned only with the spring forces in the structure and the other only with the inertial forces imposed by the mass carried, easy calculations can be used to solve fairly complex structures. A. Bolton
Clients, consultants, observers and users often express concern when perceptible motions of buildings, bridges, offshore and other fixed structures occur. In this paper human reactions to such vibration are discussed and magnitudes of motion caused by a variety of environmental and other forces which should prove acceptable to the majority of people who use the structures, and many purposes are suggested. A.W. Irwin
