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