Ground reaction forces on vibrating structures

Abstract:

Due to world-wide reports and evidence that modern public structures can undergo perceivable motion as a result of rhythmic crowd excitation, the present study investigated the effects of structural vibration on ground reaction forces (GRFs) and the potential use of this data in structural engineering design. GRF data of several human subjects were measured on a fully instrumented grandstand whose motion can be controlled to simulate a vibrating seating deck. Subjects were requested to stand ...
