Seismic Performance Assessment of HSR Bridges through Structural Simulation and Testing

  title={Seismic Performance Assessment of HSR Bridges through Structural Simulation and Testing},
  author={M. Mahdi Salehi},
In this presentation, the seismic performance of Hybrid Sliding-Rocking (HSR) bridge columns with various designs and under different loading conditions is evaluated via numerical simulations and experimental tests. The numerical study employs structural models with a recently proposed HSR element formulation to examine the effects of different design variables on the seismic performance of HSR columns. This study shows that facilitating joint sliding can improve the seismic performance of HSR…
