COMPARISON OF ASCE/SEI STANDARD (2010) AND MODAL PUSHOVER BASED GROUND MOTION SCALING PROCEDURES FOR PRE-TENSIONED CONCRETE BRIDGES

2017-11-01
The seismic design and evaluation of large bridges is a demanding task owing to the significant size and the structural characteristics of these systems. Although elastic analysis methods are regarded as sufficient for common, uncritical bridges; complex analysis methods such as non-linear time history analysis (NTHA) are often required for non-standard and/or important bridges. The selection of the ground motions that will be used in non-linear time history analysis is a crucial task in this regard as the results of time history analyses will show a wide variability according to the utilized earthquake record. Furthermore, in order to predict the expected demand in accordance with the seismic hazard conditions of the site, the selected ground motions are usually modified by the scaling procedures. A separate but equally important goal is to obtain the engineering demand efficiently with a small number of representative motions. Within this context, in this study, the relative performance of two ground motion scaling methods, namely the Modal Pushover Based Scaling (MPS) and ASCE/SEI Standard (2010) procedures, are investigated using a number of ground motion sets selected from a suite of 35 ground motions for the NTHA of a representative large vi bridge, the Demirtas Viaduct. The system, composed of 28 spans and various expansion joints, is idealized with two different analytical models. Three different target earthquake levels are used for both models in order to determine the effect of the scaling of the ground motions at different hazard levels. The final goal of the study is to establish the sensitivity of the demand parameters and the efficiency of the ground motion scaling techniques considering different target demand levels and structural model

Evaluation and selection of ground motion intensity measures for nonlinear seismic demand and fragility analysis of MDOF systems
Kadaş, Koray; Yakut, Ahmet; Department of Civil Engineering (2021-5-21)
In performance-based seismic design methodology, intensity measures are thought to be key parameters of ground motion records that relate the seismic hazard levels with the structural response or damage. Therefore, it is important to identify efficient intensity measures that are capable of reducing the variability in seismic demand predictions. There exist several simple-to-advanced scalar and vector ground motion intensity measures; however, the literature is limited in the number of comparative studies i...
Influence of ground motion scaling methods on seismic response of highway bridges
Gözütok Gündüz, Merve; Yakut, Ahmet; Yılmaz, Mustafa Tolga; Department of Earthquake Studies (2022-8-29)
Seismic behavior of bridges is a vital issue for all earthquake prone countries. Accurate seismic analysis of bridges is important because bridges are one of the most important transportation networks in Turkiye which is an earthquake prone country located on three main fault lines as Northern Anatolia Fault, East Anatolia Fault and West Anatolia Fault. In engineering practice in Turkiye there are three main specifications which are AASHTO LRFD Design Specifications for Bridge Design, Eurocodes and Turkish ...
Quantitative approach to rapid seismic evaluation of slab-on-girder steel highway bridges
Dicleli, Murat (1996-01-01)
A quantitative approach follows for developing a methodology for the rapid seismic evaluation and ranking of slab-on-girder steel highway bridges. In the development of this methodology, analytical expressions are introduced to calculate the seismically induced forces and displacements in bridge components, first assuming that damage to bearings is not acceptable and then removing this constraint. In the latter case, the superstructure is assumed to become unrestrained and slide on its supports. The seismic...
