Geotechnical, Geological and Earthquake Engineering

Seismic Design and Assessment of Bridges

Inelastic Methods of Analysis and Case Studies

Editors: Kappos, A.J., Saiidi, M.S., Aydınoğlu, M.N., Isaković, T. (Eds.)

  • Fills a critical gap in the literature related to seismic assessment and design of bridges
  • Presents in a uniform and subjective way all important methods for inelastic analysis of bridges, some of which are adopted by modern codes like Eurocode 8
  • Includes detailed case-studies of bridge assessment, so far available in the specialised research-oriented literature only
  • Assists the engineer and/or researcher to select the method that best suits the individual bridge projects that he/she faces

About this book

The book focuses on the use of inelastic analysis methods for the seismic assessment and design of bridges, for which the work carried out so far, albeit interesting and useful, is nevertheless clearly less than that for buildings. Although some valuable literature on the subject is currently available, the most advanced inelastic analysis methods that emerged during the last decade are currently found only in the specialised research-oriented literature, such as technical journals and conference proceedings.

Hence the key objective of this book is two-fold, first to present all important methods belonging to the aforementioned category in a uniform and sufficient for their understanding and implementation length, and to provide also a critical perspective on them by including selected case-studies wherein more than one methods are applied to a specific bridge and by offering some critical comments on the limitations of the individual methods and on their relative efficiency.

The book should be a valuable tool for both researchers and practicing engineers dealing with seismic design and assessment of bridges, by both making the methods and the analytical tools available for their implementation, and by assisting them to select the method that best suits the individual bridge projects that each engineer and/or researcher faces.
