Abstract

People living in buildings may be exposed to dynamic action. Increasingly in the diagnosis and design of buildings there is a need to take into account these activities and verification of compliance of the building requirements for vibration comfort of people residing in buildings. This study presents the results of analysis of such criteria in the following standards: Polish PN-88/B-02170, British BS 6472-1, German DIN 4150 and ISO international standards. Based on the results of this analysis and on the review of selected items of literature application of standards recommendations in diagnosis and design of buildings, as well as areas for further research on this subject, were indicated. Keywords: vibration, vibration impact on people in buildings, vibration comfort.
