In the paper the characteristics of selected dynamic load models of vertical forces generated during pedestrian movement (Vertical Ground Reaction Forces - VGRFs) and the results of dynamic numerical analyses and dynamic field tests of an exemplary footbridge were presented. Numerical analyses of the footbridge were performed taking into account recommendations of different authors and standards relating to VGRFs models as well as VGRFs measured by authors during laboratory tests using force platform. For comparative purposes, the dynamic field tests of the footbridge were carried out. The results and conclusions from comparative analyses of the dynamic responses of the footbridge obtained for various load models and field tests were presented.
