This session aims to provide the current knowledge in performance-based design of bridges. Bridges are a critical component of our infrastructure system and failure of bridges is a safety issue. More progress has been made in performance-based design in seismic analysis of buildings than that of bridges. AASHTO seismic requirements are based on the level of ductility of structural members, importance of the structure, level of deformation, and soil conditions. On the other hand, performance-based design is based on having bridge performance achieve defined performance criteria such as strength, ductility, or deformation. The session contains presentations of experimental and/or analytical research focusing on the performance-based design of bridges and bridge components.
