Detailing of Seismically Resilient Special Truss Moment Frames
An innovative detail that facilitates the use of energy dissipating devices, such as Buckling Restrained Braces (BRBs), is proposed for Special Truss Moment Frames (STMFs). The configuration of the proposed Special Truss ...
Preliminary Dynamic Analysis of a Railroad Bridge
Longitudinal Seismic Performance of Precast Bridge Girders Integrally Connected to a Cast-in-Place Bentcap
Precast bridge girders are popular throughout the United States primarily because they allow for better construction tolerances, quicker construction methods at the job site, and elimination of falsework over traffic lanes. ...
Seismic Analysis and Response of Highway Bridges with Hybrid Isolation
In this study hybrid isolation is proposed as an alternative to (full) seismic isolation for minimizing bridge damage in strong earthquakes. In this technique isolators are only used at the abutments, and monolithic or ...
Effect of Skew on Seismic Performance of Bridges with Seat-Type Abutments
