Committee Mission: Develop and report information on bridges to resist earthquakes.
Goals: 1) Draft a new document on recommendations for design of earthquake-resistant reinforced concrete bridge pier walls; 2) Complete bridge seismic isolation guide suitable for ACI 341 publication; 3) Draft a new document on performance-based seismic design of bridges; 4) Revise seismic retrofit document; and 5) Continue to develop content and mission for column subcommittee after publication of Seismic Design of Bridge Columns Based on Drift document.
Documents Under Development:
• 341.YR (Future): Guide for Isolation Bearings
• 341.ZR (Future): Recommendations for Design of Earthquake-Resistant Reinforced Concrete Bridge Pier Walls
