Structural Vibration Engineering, Footsteps on glass stairs

Using fundamental structural dynamic principles, the latest research from the US and Europe, and finite element techniques, Hinman provides accurate structural vibration predictions and cost effective, real world solutions over prescriptive, code-based approaches.

More efficient floor construction systems and higher performance demands have made structural vibration considerations a vital piece in structural design.

Structural vibration disturbs people and, if not accounted for, renders sensitive equipment facilities unusable. Of particular concern are buildings with long spans or of lightweight construction, footbridges, staircases, buildings with rhythmic crowd loading (stadiums, gyms etc.) and low vibration environments, such as laboratories or precision manufacturing.
