A Study of Dynamic Characteristics of a Multistory Building Using Ambient Vibration Tests (TECHNICAL NOTE)


Civil Engineering, Tarbiat Modarres University


Dynamic characteristics of a typical multistory building in Iran have been studied in two different stages of building construction, using ambient vibration tests. Finite element models have also been used to determine these characteristics and to verify test results. The results indicated the agreements and also differences between conventional theoretical models and the behaviour of real structures.
