Vibration from people walking, dancing or exercising in synchrony, caused by the dynamic force imparted to the structure by the activity, can generate motion that can be felt by people which can be distracting and detrimental to the perceived performance of the structure.

It can also impact on the performance of sensitive equipment in buildings such as hospitals and laboratories.

We use advanced analysis to model vibration performance of structures due to footfall excitation which allows use to determine options to reduce or mitigate the vibration effect.
