Footbridge Vibration Design
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


The trend in the construction of footbridges marked by an increased lightness and slenderness has brought new requirements into design. In effect, despite the small loads associated with pedestrian action, two episodes of large vibrations in two landmarks, the Millennium Bridge in London, and the Solferino Bridge in Paris, have shown the importance of dynamic effects in long span footbridges. This gave rise to the need to develop methodologies for their assessment and control. The intensive research developed during the last decade on human-induced vibrations in footbridges is now getting more accredited by the establishment of design guidelines and recommendations. Footbridge Vibration Design presents new approaches, numerical tools and experimental tools for assessing and controlling pedestrian effects. Moreover, it includes a number of reference cases dealing with design and control. Focussed on the translation of these findings into practical recommendations, guidelines, codes and design tools for the design of new footbridges, it aims to set a standard for footbridge design. This book is intended for civil and mechanical engineers working on footbridges or related infrastructural projects.
