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...


Reinforced concrete (RC) bridges with both skew and curvature are common in areas with complex terrains. Skewed and/or curved bridges were found in existing studies to exhibit more complicated seismic performance than straight bridges, however the related seismic risk studies are still rare. These bridges...


When one think of earthquakes the Mountain Plains Region does not come first to mind; rather, the West Coast, South America, Japan, and most recently Italy and Nepal can easily be pictured. According to the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) the largest earthquake on record for Colorado occurred in 1882...
