© WCTE 2018 Committee. At present, there is no single conclusive floor vibration assessment standard and different countries follow different procedures and guides. This paper presents a comparison between the Japanese and Australian floor vibration assessment measures and criteria through a case study of a 9-metre span LVL ribbed-deck cassette floor. The assessment measures include the response factor, representative vibration dose value, peak acceleration, vibration level and VLT. The aim of the paper is to identify the reasons behind the differences and to learn about recent research in floor vibration from Japan that may be different from Western practices.
