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 ...
Interaction between pedestrian loading and vibration response of a laboratory-scale FRP composite footbridge.
(Bridge Engineering Association, 2017-08)
Pedestrian loading on flexible structures such as footbridges, grandstands and lightweight floors is an area, which is receiving significant attention from the research commu-nity of late. One of the key parameters in ...
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 ...
Variations in vertical loading from walking due to surface vibration.
(Hemming Information Services, 2014-07)
Walking trials have been carried out on rigid and flexible walkways mounted with a force plate in order to determine how vertical pedestrian loading is influence by these two walking platforms. This paper presents the ...
A parametric study of pedestrian vertical force models for dynamic analysis of footbridges.
Footbridge vibration has received much attention in recent years. However, stochastic models for crowd loading are not common, and estimation of crowd-induced vibration is typically done through enhancement factors applied ...
Vibration serviceability considerations in footbridge design.
Modern footbridges are becoming more and more flexible as they are constructed lighter and more slender than ever before. This has led to a vibration serviceability issue with many footbridges, as they can become ‘lively’ ...
