Abstract

In this paper, the accuracies of four well-established floor vibration evaluation methods developed over the last couple of decades are investigated by comparing predictions with observed acceptability of each bay. A large database of steel-framed floors subjected to walking excitation is used for the evaluations and comparisons. Detailed comparisons have been made among the methods of the American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC) Design Guide 11 Chapter 4 Method; Steel Construction Institute (SCI) P354 Simplified Method; Steel Construction Institute (SCI) P354 Vibration Dose Values; and Human Induced Vibration of Steel Structures (HIVOSS) Method. The floor bay database is based on data collected from real buildings and it contains 22 satisfactory and 28 unsatisfactory bays, a total of 50 bays.
