Floor Vibrations — Tips for Designers
The purpose of this paper is to suggest a number of practical concepts which can be used to improve the performance of floor systems subject to occupant induced motion from either walking,...

Composite Floor Vibrations: Predicted and Measured
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...

Seismic Response of Multistory Building Structures With Flexible Floor Diaphragms
An efficient model for three-dimensional analysis of multistory structures with flexible floor diaphragms is proposed in this paper. Three-dimensional analysis of a building structure...

Floor Response Spectra Including Structure-Equipment Interaction Effects
An efficient method for generating floor response spectra with the structure-equipment interaction effects is proposed. Floor response spectra are computed from a prescribed ground response...

Ocean Management in Danish Waters

Optimization of Structures Subjected to Vibrations
A minimum cost optimization procedure is presented for the analysis of multi-degree freedom structures subjected to steady, transient and random vibration environment. The procedure is...

Sorting of Mixed Sand on a Two-Dimensional Beach
A numerical method is developed to predict temporal variations of the sea bed topography and the bed-material composition. The predicted results are compared with the measurements in a...
