Influence of between-joists bridging elements on static and dynamic response of wood joisted floors

Journal Article
Khokhar, A., Chui, Y. H., & Smith, I. (2019)
Influence of between-joists bridging elements on static and dynamic response of wood joisted floors. Engineering Structures, 188, 362-368. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.engstruct.2019.03.039
Excessive vertical vibration of lightweight floors caused by walking or similar activities can be annoying to building occupants. Previous studies have shown that the vibrati...

Determination of shear modulus of wood joists from torsion tests and relationship with modulus of elasticity

Conference Proceeding
Khokhar, A., & Zhang, J. (2018)
Determination of shear modulus of wood joists from torsion tests and relationship with modulus of elasticity
This paper presents the work that was undertaken to use torsion tests to evaluate the shear modulus of wood joists. The relationship of the shear modulus with modulus of elast...

Ribbed-plate Approach to Predict Static and Dynamic Responses of Timber Floor with Between-Joist Bracing

Conference Proceeding
Khokhar, A., & Chui, Y. (2016)
Ribbed-plate Approach to Predict Static and Dynamic Responses of Timber Floor with Between-Joist Bracing. In CD-ROM Proceedings of the World Conference on Timber Engineering (WCTE 2016)
Installing between-joist bracing can be an economical and effective means of mitigating excessive vibration levels in wood floors associated to human discomfort. Effectiveness...

Influence of stiffness of between-joists bracing on vibrational serviceability of wood floors.

Conference Proceeding
Khokhar, A., Chui, Y., & Smith, I. (2012)
Influence of stiffness of between-joists bracing on vibrational serviceability of wood floors. In P. Quenneville (Ed.), Proceedings of World Conference on Timber Engineering (WCTE 2012), 362-369
Floors with repetitive parallel wood joists overlain by wood panel sheathing behave as orthotropic two-way structures since their along-joist stiffness is much higher than acr...
