Paper Abstract

This paper describes a case study of a mezzanine floor whose footfall-induced vibrations resulted in complaints from the building owner even before the space was occupied. The complaints were focused on a 'beating' characteristic that was sensed intermittently for several seconds after a person ceased walking.
