Characteristic vertical response of a footbridge due to crowd loading.
The characteristic vertical vibration of a flexible footbridge subject to crowd loading is examined in this paper. Typically, bridge vibrations produced from a crowd of pedestrians are estimated by using an enhancement ...
The effect of clusters within crowds of pedestrians on the vertical response of a flexible footbridge.
The issue of excessive vibrations of footbridges due to the passage of pedestrians has been well documented in the past decade. Despite this there still remains great uncertainty as to how to predict the acceleration ...
Enhancement factors for the vertical response of footbridges subjected to stochastic crowd loading.
The vertical acceleration response of a hypothetical footbridge is predicted for a sample of single pedestrians and a crowd of pedestrians using a probabilistic approach. This approach uses statistical distributions to ...
Lateral loads applied by pedestrians at normal walking velocities.
(Taylor & Francis, 2011)
The issue of horizontal loading from pedestrians has received increased attention from bridge designers and researchers in the past decade, primarily due to notable instances of excessive vibration of structures subjected ...
