Abstract

This presentation focuses on the pedestrian-induced vibrations which result from pedestrians walking across a bridge. RWDI studies performed on many pedestrian bridges include prediction of the force, simulation of the bridge response and the design and installation of tuned mass dampers (TMDs) to mitigate vibrations. 

This presentation is part of the 16th Annual SEAOI Midwest Bridge Symposium. 

  • Registration and a continental breakfast will be available at 7:30 am; the program begins at 8. 
  • Lunch will be provided. 
  • The program concludes at 5 pm.
