Demand for scientific laboratories and research facilities has led to many new buildings being designed now or recently completed. These laboratories support fields of research including laser-based work, physics, life science and materials science.

The equipment and processes used in laboratories often work at very fine levels of detail. As a result, they can be very sensitive to vibration – including vibration that is far below the perceptible threshold for building users. This technical article forms an introduction to this subject, includes a discussion of the main vibration issues that confront structural engineers, and explains how they can be addressed.

President's Inaugural Address: Engineering contributions to humanity through the ages and challenges

Our future as structural engineers is likely to be very exciting as society grapples with some of humanity’s most pressing needs: the effects of climate change, migration, increasing urbanisation and automation; infrastructure deficits in some of the most disadvantaged areas of the world; the impact of robotics; and the ongoing quest for the development and use of new materials are some of the issues to be confronted by our membership.
