Footfall analysis with GSA 10.1
As structures become more efficient and as clients become more demanding, it is increasingly important to know how your structure will respond to use. Will the human induced vibration disturb the occupants or even stop them from working?
From footbridges to laboratories, whether built in steel, concrete, or timber, GSA is the program that experienced engineers rely on to give them the answers.
Watch our recording to explore the theory of structural footfall analysis and how you can set up and analyse your models in GSA.
Here are some examples of GSA’s footfall analysis in action:
