Steel is gaining popularity in metropolitan Asian cities. Many modern office towers are of steel-composite construction, as they are lightweight and achieve faster construction cycles than concrete. However, the lightweight nature of steel also means a lower modal mass - and vibrations from active sources (e.g. footfall) need be considered carefully during the design stage. This article discusses vibration performance and mitigation based on recent experience in Singapore.
