Mitigating the consequences of earthquakes is essential to bridge layout. With chapters culled from the best-selling Bridge Engineering guide, this quantity units forth the rules and purposes of seismic layout, from the mandatory geotechnical and dynamic research historical past to seismic isolation and effort dissipation, energetic regulate, and retrofit know-how. In-depth discussions contributed via bridge and earthquake engineers from all over the world hide the kinds and results of earthquake harm and structural functionality standards. The ebook additionally comprises an summary of seismic layout practices in Japan, together with a examine of the wear to road bridges brought on by the Hyogo-ken Nanbu earthquake and the alterations in retrofit practices brought on through that earthquake.
