Title: Assessment and control of human induced vibrations in the new Coimbra footbridge
Issue Date: 2005
Abstract: The paper describes a dynamic study of a new slender footbridge currently under construction at the city of Coimbra, inPortugal. The bridge displays innovative characteristics and a complex dynamic behaviour. Numerical studies indicatethe vulnerability to lateral and vertical vibrations induced by pedestrians, and the need to install control devices. A set ofTMDs is proposed, and the corresponding efficiency analysed, considering the various uncertainties present in theanalysis.
