It is generally perceived that vibration is not an issue for reinforced concrete floor systems. Because of the inherent mass and stiffness of such systems, this perception is generally true, but there can be situations where the effects of vibration are one of the main design issues that has to be addressed.  
This presentation will assist the design professional in choosing an appropriate reinforced concrete floor system for situations where the effects from vibration must be considered. Simplified methods to determine key vibration characteristics of reinforced concrete floor systems that can be used to evaluate whether anticipated vibrations will be acceptable or not will be discussed. Worked-out examples illustrate the use of the methods.  
The presentation is based on the new CRSI publication titled Design Guide for Vibrations of Reinforced Concrete Floor Systems authored by Drs. David Fanella and Mike Mota. The guide is available at
