Office footfall vibrations: a discussion on response factor for design and mitigation measures

Office footfall vibrations: a discussion on response factor for design and mitigation measures

Many modern office towers are of steel-composite constructione. However, the lightweight nature of steel 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.

Temporary Works Toolkit. Part 8: Use of modular hydraulic propping systems for the temporary support

Well-designed and well-executed temporary works solutions can lead to big cost savings, while providing a safe and efficient environment for the permanent works to be built. This is particularly the case with below-ground temporary works, where there are a great many challenges to be faced by a temporary works designer.
