The contribution of non-structrual components to the overall dynamic behaviour of concrete floor slabs

Abstract:

Prestressing and the advent of high strength materials enable the construction of more slender floor slabs with lower values of natural frequency and damping. Under certain circumstances, the vibrations due to forcing frequencies of normal human activities can be annoying to the occupants. Since the occupants are both the source and the sensor, the vibration cannot be isolated and must be controlled by the structural system. At present, there is a limited knowledge about the overall dynamic c...
