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.
