Date (from - to):
23/04/2010 – 14/05/2010
The course will cover displacement-based seismic design of bridge structures, starting first with the fundamentals of the approach, and then application to SDOF and MDOF bridges. Issues related to complex bridges will also be discussed, such as plan curvature. Comparisons with traditional force-based methods will also be conducted.
