Résumé du projet :
The thesis main objective is to develop a full guidance aiming to evaluate the effects of building floor vibrations caused by human excitation (walking, running or rhythmic activities) on the comfort of people existing in that building, taking into account probabilistic aspect along with group effect in vibration analysis. Vibration serviceability assessment covers multiple usages of floors such as residential, offices, commercial centers and gymnasiums.
