This paper explores the current recommended measures for assessing vibration serviceability in building structures and the recommendations for relating these vibration measures to levels of perception and expected occupant reactions. Two of these assessment measures, the maximum transient vibration value and vibration dose value, are discussed with respect to serviceability in stadium structures. The results of the monitoring and assessment of three stadium structures during several events are presented and these results indicate that the current recommendations are overly conservative in assessing occupant perception. Recommendations for vibration dose levels that are more consistent with the evaluation of events monitored in stadium structures are proposed.
