SSI-Bridge: Soil-Bridge Interaction During Long-Duration Earthquake Motions
The seismic response of a complete soil-bridge system during shallow, crustal and subduction zone earthquakes is the topic of this report. Specifically, the effects of earthquake duration on the seismic performance of soil-bridge systems are examined. This topic is important, because many bridges worldwide are located in ...
SSI-Bridge 2: Soil-Bridge Interaction During Long-Duration Earthquake Motions
Subduction zone earthquakes are characterized by their large magnitudes, which produce many cycles of strong ground shaking, and thus, long-duration earthquake motions. The Pacific Northwest is prone to subduction zone earthquake motions. Furthermore, many of the coastal bridges in the Pacific Northwest, which will be affected ...
