Vibration is often the governing factor for CLT Floor Design, therefore understanding it and designing appropriately is critical for successful structural design.
In order to evaluate how the structure reacts to the forces caused by the movement of people, it is necessary to understand:
- Forces acting on the structure.
- Dynamic properties of the structure (mode shapes, natural frequencies, damping, etc).
- The way the structure reacts to applied forces.
