The AISC/CISC Design Guide 11 "Floor Vibrations due to Human Activity" is widely used by designers to assess floor vibration serviceability. This presentation will answer many frequently asked questions about its use: How to estimate vibration loadings, damping, floor width and length. How to analyze long span deck floors, monumental stairs, and alternate bay framing.  How to use finite element analysis to analyze floors.  And, more.

Tom Murray is Emeritus Professor of Structural Steel Design at Virginia Tech and is the first author of the AISC/CISC Design Guide 11, “Floor Vibrations due to Human Activity”.
