Dr. Igor Belykh, as the sole Principal Investigator, received a National Science Foundation grant DMS-1909924, 08/15/2019-07/31/2022, $478,754, entitled “Modern Approaches to Modeling and Predicting Bridge Instabilities.” This grant will contribute to experimentally-validated dynamical systems approaches to understanding mechanisms of the dynamical instability of bridges and other complex mechanical structures interacting with pedestrian loads. The grant aims to develop predictive methods and engineering-scale, yet mathematically tractable, biomechanical models of humans’ responses to bridge motion and vibrations of grandstands.
