Dynamic Load Factors for Pedestrian Movements and Rhythmic Exercises

Authors

  • G. Pernica

Abstract

A force platform at the Institute for Research in Construction, National Research Council of Canada, was used to obtain the dynamic load factors for five rhythmic activities for footstep rates below 4 Hz. Two pedestrian movements, walking and jogging, and three rhythmic exercises, jumping, stride jumps and running-on-the-spot, were studied. Load factors for the first four harmonics of the footstep rate were obtained for groups of one, two and four people. For jumping, load factors for eight people were also measured.
