Research into the dynamic behaviour of timber-concrete composite structures
Renovation of old and historical buildings is a very important topic in the building industry. When it comes to renovation, the design rules of floors have become stricter compared to the older design standard. Some timber floors will not fulfil the requirements of the standard when a new user function is decided with higher design loads. Vibration comfort and vibrational serviceability performance has become very important in timber floor design. Human activities and machinery are the most important sources of vibrations in timber based lightweight buildings. Several methods are available for strengthening and stiffening a timber floor.
