Curved Bridge:Seismic Effects on Multi-Span Bridges with High Degrees of Horizontal Curvature

Status: Active Testing [Video Stream]
Planned for 2012-02-21 09:00 PST

A project is underway at the University of Nevada, Reno to investigate the seismic effects of multi-span curved bridges using a 2/5 scale model of a three-span bridge. The model is 145 ft long with an 80 ft radius at the centerline and it rests on fo... [more]

Seismic Performance of Bridge Systems - Bridge Specimen #3

Status: Data Review/Interpretation
Planned for 2010-06-15 10:00 PST

The primary technical objective of the proposed study is to conduct a comprehensive investigation of the seismic performance of a series of models of four-span large-scale bridge systems including the soil-structure interaction effects at the footing... [more]

Seismic Simulation and Design of Bridge Columns under Combined Actions

Status: Active Testing
Planned for 2009-07-07 13:23 PST

During moderate to large earthquakes, reinforced concrete bridge columns (RCC) are subjected to combinations of actions and deformations, caused by spatially-complex earthquake ground motions, structural configurations and the interaction between inp... [more]

Seismic Simulation and Design of Bridge Columns under Combined Actions

Status: Specimen Demolition
Planned for 2009-06-04 10:00 PST

Bridge columns are subjected to combinations of actions and deformations, caused by spatially-complex earthquake ground motions, features of structural configurations and the interaction between input and response characteristics. Combined actions/lo... [more]

Developing Seismic Design Guidelines for Near-Fault Effects

Status: Specimen Demolition
Planned for 2009-04-14 10:00 PST

This project is a task within a larger project funded by Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) under a contract to the University of Nevada to study the seismic resilience of highway systems. The ultimate objective of this project is to develop rec... [more]

Seismic Performance of Innovative Straw Bale Wall Systems

Status: Data Review/Interpretation
Planned for 2009-03-27 10:00 PST

On October 8, 2005, the northern mountainous region of Pakistan was struck by a 7.6 magnitude earthquake which killed more than 100,000 people and rendered more than 3 million homeless due to unsafe building construction. Modern conventional building... [more]

Seismic performance of bridge systems - bridge specimen #2

Status: Completed
Planned for 2008-10-27 10:30 PST

The primary technical objective of the proposed study is to conduct a comprehensive investigation of the seismic performance of a series of models of four-span large-scale bridge systems including the soil-structure interaction effects at the footing... [more]

Shake Table Testing of a Substandard Two-Column Bridge Bent Subjected

Status: Completed
Planned for 2008-01-11 08:59 PST

Past shake table tests on reinforced concrete bridge columns that are designed based on current codes have shown that the fault-normal component of near fault ground motions could cause significant residual displacements even under moderate ground m... [more]

Seismic performance of bridge systems

Status: Completed
Planned for 2007-02-15 10:00 PST

The primary technical objective of the proposed study is to conduct a comprehensive investigation of the seismic performance of a series of models of four-span large-scale bridge systems including the soil-structure interaction effects at the footing... [more]
