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 the AISC Design Guide 11, along with the SJI Technical Digest 5 “Vibration of Steel Joist – Concrete Slab Floors.”
This in-depth webinar is sponsored by the Steel Joist Institute (SJI) and participation will earn you 1.5 PDHs.
- 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.
