Shake Table Studies on Soil-Abutment-Structure Interaction in Skewed Bridges
Soil-abutment-structure interaction could affect the seismic response of bridges considerably. Skew angle might significantly influence the mobilized passive resistance of the backfill soil and the behavior of soil-abutment ...
Seismic Performance of Bridge Column-Pile-Shaft Pin Connections for Application in Accelerated Bridge Construction
Bridges with integral superstructures are common in high-seismic regions. The superstructure and substructure are connected using rigid connections in these bridges. However, hinge or “pin” connections may be used to ...
Experimental and Analytical Seismic Studies of Bridge Piers with Innovative Pipe Pin Column-Footing Connections and Precast Cap Beams
The use of prefabricated structural elements is an integral part of many accelerated bridge construction (ABC) efforts. Connections of these prefabricated elements to the rest of the structural system is critical to the ...
Next Generation of Bridge Columns for Accelerated Bridge Construction in High Seismic Zones
Accelerated bridge construction (ABC) utilizes advanced planning, new construction techniques, and innovative detailing to facilitate construction. ABC offers many advantages over conventional construction, the most ...
Experimental and Analytical Seismic Studies of a Four-Span Bridge System with Composite Piers
Funded by the National Science Foundation through the Network for Earthquake Engineering Simulation (NEES) research program, a major multi-university research project has been in progress at the University of Nevada, Reno. ...
Precast Column-Footing Connections for Accelerated Bridge Construction in Seismic Zones
Accelerated bridge construction (ABC) has become increasingly popular in the eyes of state and federal transportation agencies because of its numerous advantages. To effectively execute ABC projects, designers utilize ...
Seismic Response of Precast Bridge Columns with Energy Dissipating Joints
Accelerated bridge construction (ABC) is attractive in congested urban areas and environmentally sensitive regions because it minimizes traffic delays and construction site safety risk. Precast bridge components are an ...
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 ...
Unbonded Prestressed Columns for Earthquake Resistance
Modern structures are able to survive significant shaking caused by earthquakes. By implementing unbonded post-tensioned tendons in bridge columns, the damage caused by an earthquake can be significantly lower than that ...
