Due to the current limitations on seismic forecasting, there is a high chance that a considerable number of vehicles would remain on a bridge when an earthquake occurs. In traditional seismic analyses, traffic loads were often ignored. Existing mode-based bridge-traffic interaction analysis usually cannot...


This project studies effective configurations of self-centering devices in the seismic retrofit of curved bridges for control of longitudinal and lateral forces. Reparability of bridge columns is investigated experimentally. A seismic retrofit and repair technique using a Carbon Fiber Reinforced Polymer...


The objective of this project is to find effective configurations for using buckling restrained braces (BRBs) in both skewed and curved bridges for reducing the effects of strong earthquakes. Verification is performed by numerical simulation using analytical models of existing bridges when BRBs are implemented...
