Dynamics of Bridges, Volume 5
On flexible structures such as footbridges and long-span floors, walking loads may generate excessive structural vibrations and serviceability problems. The problem is increasing because of the growing tendency to employ long spans in structural design. In many design codes, the vibration serviceability limit state is assessed using a walking load model in which the walking parameters are modelled deterministically. However, the walking parameters are stochastic (for instance the weight of thedoi:10.1007/978-1-4419-9825-5_17 fatcat:7b7tmfbzj5chbchkzevjhoavy4
