Abstract [en]

The authors investigate the human induced vibrations in typical composite timber floors inresidential buildings. Assessment methods given in different design codes and guidelines,such as the Eurocode, are discussed. A case study analysis based on the differentmethodologies is carried out to assess the acceptability of a specific timber floor. Twoextreme cases are considered: full and non-composite action. It is shown that compositeaction improves the floor acceptability for general residential applications. The limitations ofthe different criteria given in the codes and guidelines for assessing floor vibrations in timberfloor structures are discussed and, also, the possible improvement of these criteria.
