The 17 papers presented cover a wide array of subjects related to seismic behavior of concrete bridge structures. Topics include the impact of recent earthquakes on the seismic design process, results of recent experimental research on behavior of bridge components during earthquakes, case studies of bridge seismic upgrades, and the use of composite materials and seismic isolation systems to enhance seismic performance.
