Influence of horizontal curvature radius and bent skew angle on seismic response of RC bridges

Nina Serdar, Srđan Janković, Mladen Ulićević

Abstract

The influence of horizontal curvature radius, bridge bents skew angle, and type of column bents, on the seismic response of bridges is studied in the paper. A total of eighteen frame-system bridges were analysed. More than 2700 nonlinear dynamic analyses were conducted for earthquake records matching a particular location by the magnitude, distance from fault, and foundation soil conditions. The response analysis shows that the system’s vulnerability increases with a decrease in curvature radius.

Keywords
curved bridge, skewed bridge, probabilistic response model, intensity rating
