An Introduction to Vibration Control in Buildings

COURSE NO: M03-026
An Introduction to Vibration Control in Buildings
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course provides an introduction to the technology, systems and design practices for the design of vibration isolation measures in buildings.


Structural vibration in buildings, which results in feelable vibration, produces structural or superficial damage of building components or interferes with equipment operation is unacceptable. In addition large building components that vibrate can produce unacceptable sound levels.


This 3 PDH online course is intended for mechanical engineers and other design and construction professionals seeking an introduction to the principles of vibration isolation in buildings.
