Seismic Design Aids for Nonlinear Pushover Analysis of Reinforced Concrete and Steel Bridges

Seismic Design Aids for Nonlinear Pushover Analysis of Reinforced Concrete and Steel Bridges

Jeffrey Ger, Franklin Y. Cheng
June 07, 2017

Nonlinear static monotonic (pushover) analysis has become a common practice in performance-based bridge seismic design. The popularity of pushover analysis is due to its ability to identify the failure modes and the design limit states of bridge piers and to provide the progressive collapse...

Random Vibration: Mechanical, Structural, and Earthquake Engineering Applications

Random Vibration: Mechanical, Structural, and Earthquake Engineering Applications

Zach Liang, George C. Lee
April 14, 2015

Focuses on the Basic Methodologies Needed to Handle Random Processes After determining that most textbooks on random vibrations are mathematically intensive and often too difficult for students to fully digest in a single course, the authors of Random Vibration: Mechanical, Structural, and...

Structural Damping: Applications in Seismic Response Modification

Structural Damping: Applications in Seismic Response Modification

Zach Liang, George C. Lee, Gary F. Dargush, Jianwei Song
November 21, 2011

Rapid advances have been made during the past few decades in earthquake response modification technologies for structures, most notably in base isolation and energy dissipation systems. Many practical applications of various dampers can be found worldwide and, in the United States, damper design...

Seismic Design Aids for Nonlinear Analysis of Reinforced Concrete Structures

Seismic Design Aids for Nonlinear Analysis of Reinforced Concrete Structures

Srinivasan Chandrasekaran, Luciano Nunziante, Giorgio Serino, Federico Carannante
July 29, 2009

Tools to Safeguard New Buildings and Assess Existing OnesNonlinear analysis methods such as static pushover are globally considered a reliable tool for seismic and structural assessment. But the accuracy of seismic capacity estimates—which can prevent catastrophic loss of life and astronomical...
