Highway bridges in highly seismic regions can sustain considerable residual displacements in their columns following large earthquakes. These residual displacements are an important measure of post-earthquake functionality, and often determine whether or not a bridge remains usable following an earthquake. In this study, a self-centering system is considered that makes use of unbonded, post-tensioned steel tendons to provide a restoring force to bridge columns to mitigate the problem of… CONTINUE READING
