Sacrificial bearing components for quasi-isolated response of bridges subject to high-magnitude, low-probability seismic hazard (2013-08-22)Bridges in low- to moderate-seismic zones, such as Mid-America, commonly employ elastomeric expansion bearings to accommodate service-level thermal deformations in the superstructure. Any potentially beneficial effect of ...
(Illinois Center for Transportation/Illinois Department of Transportation, 2018-08)The seismic behavior of integral abutment bridges (IABs) is of particular interest in southern Illinois, where proximity to the New Madrid Seismic Zone may create significant ground motion accelerations during an earthquake. ...
Seismic Response of RC Members Subjected to the 2009 L'Aquila (Italy) Near-Field Earthquake Ground Motions (2010-02-04)The present work assesses the seismic response of reinforced concrete (RC) members subjected to horizontal (HGMs) and vertical (VGMs) ground motions recorded during the 2009 L’Aquila (Italy) earthquake. Normalized axial ...
