This poster describes a project to establish whether crowd simulation software, supplemented with a pedestrian loading model, could be a suitable tool for the analysis of human-induced vibrations of structures.

Research Funded by: 2016/17 MSc Research Grant
Poster: Mr Artur Soczawa-Stronczyk
Supervisor: Dr Nikolaos Nikitas (1) & Dr Mateusz Bocian (2)
University: University of Leeds (1) / University of Leicester (2)

Summary:

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.
