A poster from a project funded by the Institution's 2016/17 MSc Research Grants.

The aim of this project was to establish whether a crowd simulation software, in this case MassMotion, once supplemented with a pedestrian loading model, could be a suitable tool for the analysis of human-induced vibrations of structures.

Summary:

Despite recent advancements in computational techniques, modelling crowd walking on flexible structures remains a formidable challenge to the structural engineers. Specifically, it is still unclear what factors influence the pedestrians' behaviour and how they translate into the structural response. Therefore, further research on this subject is deemed necessary.
