Recommendations on crowd loading for those with responsibility for permanent grandstands, including: owners, operators, architects, insurers and design engineers.

This guidance addresses the technical issues resulting from human interaction with moderately flexible permanent grandstand structures. It focuses on dynamic action due to crowd activty, and applies to grandstands with seating decks constructed using structural steel and/or reinforced or prestressed concrete, and supported spans of more than 6m (or cantilever spans in excess of 2.5m).
