Abstract

This study presents assessment of floor micro-vibrations induced by moving vehicles in high technology factories by using a fragility-based method. A series of time history analysis of a simplified three-span continuous beam model under moving loads simulated by a modified Kanai-Tajimi power spectral density (PSD) function considering various vehicle weights and moving speeds is performed. The best-fitting surface in terms of the maximum root mean square (RMS) velocity responses and their corresponding pair of the vehicle weight and moving speed is obtained by using the least square regression method. With the regression surface denoting the mean values and the standard deviation obtained, the fragility surfaces for each vibration criterion or limit are further constructed. The assessment of the floor micro-vibration in terms of probability of exceeding a given vibration limit for various pairs of vehicle weight and moving speed can be read accordingly from the fragility surfaces.
