Abstract:
The load-deflection and vibration characteristics of a structure are closely associated. The use of high strength concrete i n prestressed building elements along with composite construction con produce building components which hove resonant frequencies at various stages of load- ing to which the human body is sensitive. - Vibrations with low amplitude may be sensed easily if the resonant frequency of the structure is relatively high. This paper de- scribes full scale load and vibration tests conducted on a multistory precast building. The degree of composite action was determined and found to be much more com- plete than normally considered in design. The vi brotion characteristics were determined and ore discussed.
