The New and Improved Design Guide 11, 2nd ed. -- Vibrations of Steel-Framed Systems Due to Human Activity [E5a]

This session will highlight the many updates and new material included in the newly updated Design Guide 11 based on the large volume of literature that has been published on the response of steel framed structural systems including floors, monumental stairs, and balconies due to human activity since the original Design Guide was published. Human tolerance and sensitive equipment tolerance limits have been modified, updated methods to evaluate high frequency systems have been proposed, and the use of the finite element method to analyze structural systems supporting human activity has been refined. Simplified methods to evaluate problem floors have also been proposed.
