A number of U.S. coastal bridges have been destroyed by hurricanes, including three highway bridges in Mississippi and Louisiana during Hurricane Katrina (2005). This paper addresses three fundamental questions on the coastal bridge failures: (1) what were the hydrodynamic conditions near the failed bridge during the hurricane; (2) what was the cause of the bridge collapse; and (3) what was the magnitude of the hydrodynamic loading on the bridge under the extreme hurricane conditions. Guided by… CONTINUE READING
