Building design for low- or ultra-low vibration requires careful consideration of building materials and the coupling between building components including floors, walls and support columns. With a new building design, we model the building’s vibration characteristics using finite element techniques, in order to predict vibration levels at locations throughout the structure. We then compare this to the vibration requirements of the tools or instruments to be used inside it. If the criteria are not met, we modify the structure in our computer model, in order to adjust the structural dynamics to meet the required vibration levels. Below are some of our building structural design projects.
