Interactive horizontal load model for pedestrians crossing footbridges.
(Taylor & Francis, 2007-02-16)
In recent years several theories have been put forward in relation to lateral forces imparted on bridges from crowd movements. It is now widely accepted that the interaction between the crowd and the structure, particularly ...
Transient response simulation of a composite material footbridge to crossing pedestrians.
(CRC Press, 2003)
Loads applied by pedestrians, and crowds of pedestrians, are particularly important for footbridges with natural frequencies close to footfall frequencies of moving pedestrians. Recorded response data from Aberfeldy Bridge, ...
Vertical crowd load models for vibration serviceability assessment of footbridges
(Civil-Comp Press, 2009)
Most pedestrian load models prescribed in existing design codes of practice do not consider any interaction between the pedestrian and the moving structure. However, it is now widely accepted that this interaction is ...
