Intended Audience: mechanical engineers and other design and construction professionals


This course will introduce you to methods, materials and devices for control of vibrations in buildings. Structural vibration in buildings, which results in feelable vibration, produces structural or superficial damage of building components or interferes with equipment operation is unacceptable. In addition large building components that vibrate can produce unacceptable sound levels. Course Outline 1. VIBRATION CRITERIA 2. VIBRATION ISOLATION ELEMENTS 3. VIBRATION CONTROL 4. TABLES OF RECOMMENDED VIBRATION ISOLATION DETAILS 5. VIBRATION ISOLATION – MISCELLANEOUS This course will give you professional tools that will allow you to move forward in learning how to design for mitigation of objectionable vibrations in buildings.
