Abstract:

Note: A newer version of this document exists. This document was replaced by 341.2R-14.

This document, intended for use by practicing engineers, provides a summary of the state-of-the-art analysis, modeling, and design of concrete bridges subjected to strong earthquakes. This report is intended to complement existing documents form AASHTO, Caltrans, and UBC. Procedures and philosophies of current and emerging codes and guidelines are summarized. Linear and nonlinear seismic analysis methods are also discussed, and important modeling considerations for different bridge elements including curved girders and skewed abutments are highlighted. The report summarizes analysis and design considerations for concrete bridges with seismic isolation as well as general seismic design considerations.
