Title: Development of Model Performance Criteria for Deflection of Concrete Floors
Author(s): Robert A. Crist and James A. Shaver
Publication: Special Publication
Appears on pages(s): 43-66
Keywords: concrete slabs; deflection; dynamic loads; floors; human factors engineering; mathematical models; performance; serviceability; static loads; vibrations
Abstract:Serviceability performance criteria for floor systems are discussed in terms of their static and dynamic components. Traditional static stiffness criteria are discussed along with a review of their strengths and weaknesses. Model performance criteria for serviceable floors are developed from a vibration veiwpoint. A new approach for future floor vibration criteria is described.
