Summary
The objective of this research is to develop efficient panel-to-panel connection details, and optimum floor configuration, including rigging details, for handling in the factory and at the construction site. Computer modelling will be conducted to develop preliminary recommendations on panel-to-panel connection details and optimum floor panel configuration. These recommendations will then be validated by a testing program in the laboratory.

Summary
The volume occupied by all components between the ceiling of a floor and the floor of the upper floor (slab, ventilation duct, plumbing, etc.) is of great importance and it is best to minimize its thickness. This project aims to develop a multi-objective optimization strategy to design this sandwich type assembly according to various structural, acoustic, thermal and mass transfer criteria (Alev and Kalamees, 2017), while minimizing its volume, its size and its cost. and this, according to a given context. A case study will be conducted to assess the degree of optimality of the solutions chosen. Multidisciplinary tools facilitating the optimal design of this system will be proposed.

Summary
Based on classic vibrational bending theory on beams, this paper provides comprehensive analytical formulae for dynamic characteristics of two equal span continuous timber flooring systems, including frequency equations, modal frequencies, and modal shapes. Four practical boundary conditions are considered for end supports, including free, sliding, pinned, and fixed boundaries, and a total of sixteen combinations of flooring systems are created. The deductions of analytical formulae are also expanded to two unequal span continuous flooring systems with pinned end supports, and empirical equations for obtaining the fundamental frequency are proposed. The acquired analytical equations for vibrational characteristics can be applied for practical design of two-span continuous flooring systems. Two practical design examples are provided as well.
