Title: Estimation of the Dynamic Stressing of Floors and Other Structural Parts of Buildings Due to Shocks and Blasting: Determination of Stresses by Measurement of the Vibration Velocity
Author(s): R. Gasch and P. Klippel
Publication: Special Publication
Appears on pages(s): 109-138
Keywords: beams (supports); buildings; dynamic loads; floors; measurement; shock mechanics; stresses; structural members; vibration
Abstract:Traffic in towns, quarry blasting near to towns often cause dynamic loads in buildings like residental houses which are designed for static loads only. . .In this paper it is shown by an analytical approach and numerical time history calculations for beams and beam systems that the vibration velocity is the best kinematic quantity for stress-evaluation.
