Performance of Seismic-Isolated Bridges with Elastic-Gap Devices in Near-Fault Zones



Performance of seismic-isolated bridges with and without elastic-gap devices in near-fault zones
Dicleli, Murat (2008-05-01)
In this paper, the efficiency of providing elastic-gap devices (EGDs) to improve the performance of seismic- isolated bridges (SIBs) in near-fault (NF) zones is investigated. The device is primarily made of an assembly of circular rubber bearings and steel plates to provide additional elastic stiffness to the SIB upon closure of a gap. The EDG is intended to function at two performance levels under service and maximum considered design level (MCDL) NF earthquakes to reduce isolator displacements while keepi...

Performance of Beam-to-Column Connection of a Well-Detailed RC Moment Frame Building under Pseudodynamic Loading
Unal, Mehmet; Burak Bakır, Burcu (American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), 2013-06-01)
The performance of RC frame members under earthquake loading may differ significantly from that of the frame. Even if the story drifts are not significant, a collapse mechanism may be observed because of extensive deformations in the beams, columns, or joints. Therefore, the seismic performance of each member should be investigated independently from that of the frame. In this experimental research, the seismic performance of one exterior and one interior beam-to-column connection region of a one-half-scale...

Performance of a Prestressed Concrete Pedestrian Bridge System under Equivalent Static Lateral Impact Loads
Baran, Eray; French, Catherine (American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), 2013-08-01)
The resistance of prestressed concrete through-girder (PCTG) pedestrian bridges to lateral loads was studied in response to the increasing number of vehicular impacts in the United States. This research was motivated by the lack of reported studies analyzing the behavior of such bridges to lateral impact loads, as well as their potential vulnerability in comparison with bridges that are better able to redistribute and transfer locally applied impact loads through alternate load paths. Pedestrian bridges are...
