Des Moines Skywalk System
A method is proposed for estimating pedestrian traffic on a proposed skywalk system in Des Moines, Iowa. Factors that influence usage are identified. Two mathematical models are presented...

Pedestrian Level Winds: A Brief Review
The use of analytical and wind tunnel techniques and their limitation for making estimates of pedestrian level winds on or around a building site is reviewed. Some examples of solutions...

Prediction and Control of Pedestrian-Induced Vibration in Footbridges
Footbridges vibrate because the forces imparted by the user are applied with the frequency of the pace and movement, however small, is therefore a forced vibration. In instances where...

Designing for an Acceptable Wind Environment
The comfort and safety of pedestrians has been neglected by designers because few criteria exist on acceptable wind velocities and it is difficult to predict the climatic characteristics...
