A Review of Vibration Serviceability Criteria for Floor Structures

Document Type



This paper is a survey of the historical developments in modeling human dynamic loads, perception criteria used in structural floor vibrations, and the techniques used to mitigate the human-induced vibrations. Two of the techniques are explained in more detail, namely: semi-active control and passive control using advanced materials.
