Grandstand simulator for dynamic human-structure interaction experiments

Abstract:

This paper describes the design, construction and use of a unique laboratory rig for the study of dynamic crowd-structure interaction in cantilever grandstands. The rig replicates a fifteen-seat section of raked grandstand, allowing laboratory tests to be performed under conditions which accurately represent those in a prototype structure. Built-in force plates enable full recording of the loads due to jumping or bobbing of each test participant, permitting detailed evaluation of group coordi...
