In this work an analysis of the dynamic response of a cable-stayed footbridge to mining tremors typical for two main regions of mining activity in Poland, i.e. the Legnica-Glogow Copper District (LGCD) and the Upper Silesian Coal Basin (USCB) is presented. For analysis, a 3-D finite element (FE) model of the structure was created in the ABAQUS/Standard software program. As a final result, the dynamic responses of the footbridge to the typical mining tremors were delivered. For this stage, the numerical simulations were conducted with the non-uniform kinematic excitation as well as with the uniform kinematic excitation. Finally, the evaluation of two calculation approaches was also made for the studied structure.
