Vibration Design and Testing of a Long-Span Lightweight Floor

A study is presented on vibrations of a long-span lightweight floor. The floor was analysed using various different methods to see whether it would have acceptable vibration characteristics in service. The vibration characteristics were then evaluated experimentally for the floor in its bare and finished states. The site evaluation included qualitative tests to assess human reaction to vibrations induced in the floor and quantitative tests to measure the characteristics of the floor. K.P. Osborne and B.R.
