Floors And Pedestrian Bridges

SOH Wind Engineering and Svend Ole Hansen ApS has been consultants regarding different engineering aspects in structural vibrations of various floors, staircases, balconies and pedestrian bridges. Examples of services provided for some of these structures are:

FN-Byen

FN-Byen is a 28,000 square meters office building designed to house the six United Nation organizations present in Denmark. Dynamic analyses of various structural parts as floors, staircases and pedestrian bridges were carried out in the design phase. FE-modeling of relevant elements exposed to human-induced dynamic load. Building owner: FN Byen P/S. Client: Orbicon

Schur

Offices at the Schur factory in Horsens were experiencing comfort problems regarding vibrating floors due to operating machinery in the production. Field measurements were carried out in order to investigate the structural vibrations and design a solution. Customized TMD dampers were installed in order to minimize the vibrations. Client: Schur Pack Denmark A/S

KPMG Head Office

The KPMG Head Office is to be approx. 34,000 square meters and located in Frederiksberg, Copenhagen. Dynamic analyses of eight pedestrian bridges were carried out in the design phase. FE-modeling of the bridges exposed to human-induced dynamic load. In order to construct the pedestrian bridges as slender structures, TMD dampers with a customized design were incorporated in the design of the bridges. The TMD dampers were designed to ad damping to the structure in lateral as well as in horizontal direction. Client: MT Højgaard

The Danish Technical University, Center for Electron Nanoscopy (DTU Cen)

Vibration design of a floor used for extremely sensible equipment was carried out at the Danish Technical University (DTU). Field measurements were carried out prior to and during the construction to show the level of ground vibration. Field measurements were carried out in the end of the construction phase to show the actual level of vibration of the floor when exposed to human-induced dynamic load and traffic actions. Client: DTU
