August 21 – Vibration Analysis of Steel Joist Concrete Floor Systems


SKU: WebinarAugust2019. Category: .

Product Description

Human-induced vibration is an important limit state for floors.  This Webinar will address the most common questions and misconceptions about structural vibration serviceability of steel joist concrete floor systems. It will also answer questions about the updated evaluation methods for sensitive equipment and finite element analysis methods featured in the second edition of Design Guide 11.

This in-depth webinar is sponsored by the Steel Joist Institute (SJI) and participation will earn you 1.5 PDHs.

Learning Objectives

  • Recognize and describe common pitfalls and misconceptions of vibration analysis.
  • Learn specific considerations needed when designing concrete slab steel joist floors.
  • Offer suggested procedures and criteria for determining the adequacy of steel joist concrete floors subjected to human movement such as walking and rhythmic activities.
  • Learn some basic concepts needed for the use of the finite element for vibration serviceability analysis.

Who Should Attend This Webinar?

Structural engineers, fabricators, detailers and connection design firms that are responsible for steel joist and Joist Girder building designs and their connections. Individuals who are responsible for the design of Joist Girder moment frames that are subjected to gravity and lateral loading as well as those responsible for auditing, reviewing or approving such designs will benefit from this course. Those with very little design experience as well as those with many years of experience will find the course beneficial.
