AbstractOne of the most effective ways of improving walking vibration in an existing long-span floor structure is to increase damping by adding one or more vibration absorbers to the floor structure. This note describes the principles involved and how to apply a simple plank absorber, based on experience with a test floor structure at the Division of Building Research, National Research Council of Canada.
