Title: Innovative Techniques for Seismic-Resistant Bridge Columns under Ground Motion Excitations
Author(s): Mohamed A. ElGawady
Publication: Web Session
Appears on pages(s):
Abstract:ACI Committee 341, “Earthquake-Resistant Concrete Bridges,” will be sponsoring a session on the seismic performance evaluation, design, and retrofitting of concrete bridges by using advanced materials such as shape memory alloy (SMA) in the form of reinforcing bar, wire, or strand; ultra-high-strength metals; ultra-high-performance cement composites; and nanosilica. The main objective of this session is to present results from recent research studies (experimental/numerical/analytical) and practical examples of application of advanced materials in reinforced concrete (RC) bridge piers, bents, or full bridges. This session is for practitioners, educators, and researchers.
