To evaluate the vibration serviceability of footbridge structures most structural engineers use pedestrian force models that are defined for walking on rigid surfaces. This approach is no longer applicable for slender, light-weight and low-frequency structures that are prone to perceptible vibrations under walking excitation. To overcome this issue, it is necessary to understand the pedestrian walking locomotion and how the locomotion process interacts with the vibrating structure. This paper… CONTINUE READING
