Assessment of an Earthquake Resilient Bridge with Pretensioned, Rocking Columns
The seismic performance of a new bridge system is studied, tested and improved. The new bridge system: 1) reduces onsite construction time by using precast components, 2) eliminates major earthquake damage by utilizing ...
Preliminary Seismic Analysis and Design of Reinforced Concrete Bridge Columns for Curved Bridge Experiments
As part of a Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) sponsored research project to study highway system resilience, a 40 percent scale curved steel plate girder bridge is to be constructed and subjected to earthquake simulation ...
Seismic Studies of Superstructure and Substructure Connections for Accelerated Bridge Construction
Accelerated bridge construction (ABC) refers to a bridge construction method that incorporates innovative techniques and materials to efficiently reduce construction time and traffic disruption. Prefabrication of bridge ...
Experimental and Analytical Seismic Studies of a Two-Span Bridge System with Precast Concrete Elements and ABC Connections
Accelerated bridge construction (ABC) has gained acceptance as an alternative to conventional cast-in-place (CIP) construction. However, the lack of sufficient evidence that bridges incorporating precast elements and ...
Seismic Performance of Curved Steel Plate Girder Bridges with Seismic Isolation
In a federally-funded project on the seismic performance of curved highway bridges at the University of Nevada Reno, a 2/5th scale model of a 3-span, curved steel plate girder bridge was tested on multiple shake tables ...
Shake Table Studies of a Steel Girder Bridge System with ABC Connections
Accelerated bridge construction (ABC) reduces the onsite construction time by utilizing prefabricated elements. Connections between prefabricated elements are critical in high seismic areas to maintain the integrity of ...
