Analytical/Experimental Study of Vibration of a Room-Sized Airspring-Supported Slab

This paper reports the results of the finite element analysis and in-situ testing of a large-scale (4m x 10m) pneumatically isolated concrete slab. The slab was constructed as a design prototype for next-generation metrology laboratories at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) in Gaithersburg, MD. Data include computed and measured modeshapes and natural […]...

NIST – Advanced Technology Laboratories: Metrology Laboratories & Vibration Control

The focus of this paper will be on laboratory design and issues related to vibration mitigation based upon the recent experience of Henningson, Durham & Richardson, Inc. (HDR) and its consultant, Acentech Incorporated, in designing new Advanced Technology Laboratories (ATLs) for the National Institute of Standards & Technology (NIST). Issues related to site selection, laboratory […]...
