Vibration serviceability of building floors

The current demand for many floors is open plan, slender and lightweight. As such, vibration and not strength govern their design. This course will equip engineers to appreciate state-of-the-art vibration serviceability design and assessment for low-frequency, high-frequency floors, cross-laminated timber and other lightweight floors and best practice in testing and mitigation.
