Vibrations of precast and partially prestressed floor systems under moving loads: development of a dynamic fork-lift truck model for vibration serviceability analysis and its application

Abstract:

This project studies the dynamic response of a composite floor system to excitations from moving fork-lift trucks. The floor system analysed is a system of precast and partially prestressed double-tee elements with a cast in-situ topping. Currently, there are concerns whether the vibrations caused by fork-lift trucks might exceed acceptable limits due to an ongoing trend towards structures of higher slenderness. This study investigates the mechanical background of the excitation and the cu...
