thermally insulated connections for balcony slabs

Vibrational analysis for the new HIT-HP/SP MV product range with compression-shear bearings (CSB)

Are you familiar with the effect that floor or concrete slab vibrations lead to discomfort? Undue vibration can compromise the serviceability of structures, which is why vibration must be kept within permissible limits. Frequency limits are specified in the literature that depend on the type and use of the structure. The following values are recommended for reinforced-concrete buildings and structures:

Pedestrian bridges: f1 ≥ 5 Hz

Office buildings: f1 ≥ 7.5 Hz

Discotheques and concert halls: f1 ≥...
