Deciphering the Tsunami Wave Impact and Associated Connection Forces in Open-Girder Coastal Bridges
In view of the widespread damage to coastal bridges during recent tsunamis (2004 Indian Ocean and 2011 in Japan) large-scale hydrodynamic experiments of tsunami wave impact on a bridge with open girders were conducted in ...
Role of Trapped Air on the Tsunami-Induced Transient Loads and Response of Coastal Bridges
In response to the extensive damage of coastal bridges sustained in recent tsunamis, this paper describes an investigation into tsunami-induced effects on two common bridge types, an open-girder deck with cross-frames and ...
