Abstract: Several steel composite floor systems of relatively long span trusses for a number of high rise structures in the Chicago area have been subjected to field measurements to evaluate their response to human induced vibrations. The measurements show great correlation with predicted values obtained from the design procedures, and validated the use of these procedures. A brief overview of these procedures and their historical development and applications are given. The test results also show that all floors tested have performed well, and without any perceptible vibration.
