(2000-09)The transverse response of short bridges is often critical to their seismic performance. When transverse displacements are large, damage to substructure columns may occur, often in the form of plastic hinges, shear ...
Proceedings of the Mid-America Highway Seismic Conference - Seismic Risks and Solutions for Highways and Bridges in the Central and Eastern United States (2000-05)The 1999 Mid-America Highway Seismic Conference was organized around sessions on nine different topics. The presenters at each of those sessions and their topics are listed in the attached table of contents. A letter ...
(Mid-America Earthquake Center at the University of Illinois, 2009-08)A number of destructive earthquakes have occurred in the central United States on the New Madrid Fault at the beginning of the 19th century. In the eight central U.S. states included in this investigation, rivers intersect ...
(2003-12)The goal of this study is to evaluate the seismic vulnerability of typical bridges in Mid-America and explore economical methods for modifying their seismic response. The emphasis in this thesis is on superstructure ...
