Whilst footfall induced vibrations on buildings and bridges is not normally significant in terms of structural integrity, footfall induced vibration can be a critical serviceability condition. This publication presents a method of evaluating the vibration due to a single pedestrian walking on a flat surface, such as a floor slab or bridge deck.
