Biomechanical Model Could Reduce Wobbling Of Pedestrian Bridges, Study Finds

Bridge.jpg

The dangerous wobbling of pedestrian bridges could be reduced by using biomechanically inspired models of pedestrian response to bridge motion and a mathematical formula to estimate the critical crowd size at which bridge wobbling begins, according to a study led by Georgia State University.
