The revised Technical Digest No. 5 will assist in determining the response of steel joist supported concrete slab framing systems subjected to human movement, including walking and rhythmic activities that cause floor vibrations. This 58-page publication was developed by Dr. Thomas M. Murray and Dr. Brad Davis and reviewed by the SJI Research and Engineering Practice Committees. The content was built on the historical work of Dr. Theodore Galambos, former Consulting Engineer to the Steel Joist Institute.
