Session Details

This SEU session covered vibration serviceability of floors that support sensitive equipment such as microscopes and magnetic resonance imagers. Tolerance limits for sensitive equipment are stringent and come in various forms, so these were discussed in some detail. Prerequisite vibration theory was covered, followed by a discussion of The American Institute of Steel Construction Design Guide 11 Chapter 6 methodology and experimental backing. Finally, a detailed example was presented.

Session Length: 1.5 Hours
