Abstract
Installing between-joist bracing can be an economical and effective means of mitigating excessive vibration levels in wood floors associated to human discomfort. Effectiveness of between-joist bracing depends upon its own rigidity that accounts for the location of bracing, geometric arrangement and connection stiffness of installed...

Abstract
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.
