Vibration of Steel Framed Floors Supporting Sensitive Equipment in Hospitals, Research Facilities and Manufacturing Facilities

Grants and Contracts Details


The scope of this research encompasses three main tasks. First is the development of accurate, experimentally verified design methods for vibration serviceability of steelframed floor systems supporting sensitive equipment in hospitals, research facilities, and manufacturing facilities. Second is the investigation of existing steel-framed floor systems to determine which systems possess the greatest potential for successful implementation for the support of sensitive equipment. Third is the development of innovative steel-framed floor systems that will have better vibration resistance than current systems.
