Hello Everyone,

I am doing research on crowd movement to come up with optimum or reasonable num
ber of people in a system. Applications involve the design of corridors, walkwa
ys, stadiums, congregational areas etc.

I am interested in finding a methodology to measure the force or pressure on th
e body during crowd movement, specially when there is pressure by direct skin b
ody contact or pushing etc. I am looking for a practical method that would allo
w me to relate the pressure to the number of people in the system at a particul
ar time.
