Mass timber buildings are increasing in height and size globally, driven by advancements in research on their seismic and fire performance, changes in building codes, sustainability credits, and off-site construction methods. The high strength-to-density ratio of wood benets seismic performance; however, it poses challenges in meeting the serviceability design criteria for human- and wind-induced vibrations. This presentation will provide an introduction to the vibration performance of mass timber buildings, focusing on the design for mass timber floor vibration serviceability and the dynamic properties of selected mass timber buildings. Research findings from a Canadian context will be presented and discussed, with suggestions for future research.
