Human-induced load-time histories were modeled by several dependent descriptive parameters. These parameters were treated as functions of two independent variables in a multivariate regression model. We modeled group loads by shifting the individual load-time histories by exponentially distributed random phase lag values and superimposed the results. Using a load simulation program, we randomly generated periodic and transient load-time histories for individuals and groups of four. The simulated results correlated with the corresponding laboratory-measured data.
