Damages from noise and vibration are increasing every year, and most of which are noises between floors in deteriorated building caused by floor impact sound. In this study, the floor vibration of the deteriorated buildings constructed with the concrete slabs of thickness no more than 150 mm was evaluated by the vibration impact sound. This highly reliable study was conducted to assess floor vibration according with the serviceability evaluation standard of Reiher / Meister and Koch and

Designed pressure for the concrete slab sample of floor vibration assessment was 24MPa, and the sample was manufactured pursuant to KS F 2865 and JIS A 1440-2 with size of 3200 mm× 3200 mm × 140 mm. Tests were conducted twice with accelerometers, and Fast Fourier Transform was performed for comparative analysis by the vibration assessment criteria. The peak displacement from Test 1 was in the range of 0.00869-0.02540 mm; the value of peak frequency ranged from 18 to 27 Hz, and the average value was 22Hz. The peak acceleration value from Test 2 was in the range of 0.47-1.07 % g; the value of peak frequency was 18.5-22.57 Hz, and the average was 21Hz. The vibration was apparently recognizable in most cases according to the Reiher/Meister standard. In case of Koch graph for the damage assessment of the structure, the vibration was at the medium level and causes no damage to the building structure. The measured vibration results did not exceed the damage limit or serviceability limit of building according to the vibration assessment criteria of ISO and residential assessment guidelines provided by Architectural Institute of Japan (AIJ).
