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 ...
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 ...
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’ ...
