AbstractA design procedure based on user acceptability of vibration is presented for floor structures that are subjected to rhythmic activities such as dancing and jumping exercises. The procedure is applied to different occupancies and floor constructions using available information on dynamic loading; the results are summarized as a table of minimum natural frequencies. The procedure is contained in the Supplement to the National Building Code of Canada 1985.
