Abstract [en]

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