Abstract:
The damage and destruction to a number of bridges during the Alaskan earthquake of 1964 furnished evidence of forces on bridges quite different from the acceleration forces provided for in contemporary bridge design criteria. Descriptions of the damaging effects of these forces and recommended details to resist damage from the forces are presented in this paper.
