Introduction

INTRODUCTION

  • The extensive damage of the recent earthquake have led to a significant damage of B S`s.

  • The cause is often the error of conceptual design, i. e. the choice of the structural and foundation system, spacing of piers and connections between them, deck and abutments, the spacing of joints, etc.

  • This presentation reviews philosophies of seismic design and protection which can be used in the conceptual phase of bridge design (Eurocode 8-part 2 provisions and recommendations used in U.S.A. and Japan).

Introduction1

INTRODUCTION

  • Beam system is used for small and medium spans, arch and suspension system for large spans.

  • Importance of structure, site conditions and regularity of structure influence on methods of analysis. Based on regularity in plane and elevation structures are classified as regular or non-regular.

  • Based of the need for the B, to maintain emergency communications after the design seismic event, classified: greater than average (I=1.3); average (I=1.0); less than average (I=0.7)- (EC 8-2).


Introduction2

INTRODUCTION

  • In the most current seismic code aim is to prevent collapse of the structure under the design earthquake. The importance of conceptual analysis in B designing problems cannot be stressed enough.

  • Choice of appropriate earthquake resisting structural system (ERS) must provide in early phase of design.


Design

DESIGN

Three steps in design of bridge structures (BS) are:

  • Conceptual design,

  • Analysis, &

  • Detailing.

    Three approaches in design of BS are:

  • Force - Based Seismic Design FB SD,

  • Displacement - Based Seismic Design DBD –(N. Priestley), and

  • Performance - Based Seismic Design PB SD.


Design1

DESIGN

Performance requirements depend on the importance and configuration-regularity of bridges (B′s). We can divided (B′s) on:

normal (B′s) & special bridges: arch bridges, cable-stayed B′s, B′s with extreme geometry, and B′s with distinctly different yielding strengths of piers.

Special B′s designed to behave elastically under the design earthquake or use seismic isolation to achieved elastic response.

BEHAVIOUR OF B`s IN EARTHQUAKE and BASIC DEISGN PHILOSOPHIES (BDPh)

  • The BDPh is to prevent B from collapse during severe earthquake with small probability of occurring during service life of the B.

  • The ductility behaviour using elastic calcul. with reduced seismic forces (with behaviour factor q=R) lead to economic solutions.

  • The alternative is use of elastic systems on the isolated base or used devices for dissipation of input seismic energy.

  • In concrete Binelastic damage located in the pier and abutments, and plastic hinges develop simultaneously in as many piers as possible greater energy is dissipated.

Behaviour of bridges in earthquake and basic deisgn philosophies

According EC 8:

in regions of low and moderate seismicity frequently chosen limited ductile behaviour It is needed access for inspection and repair of the pot. plastic hinges and the bearings.

In regions of moderate and high seismicity the ductile behaviour is required.

BEHAVIOUR OF BRIDGES IN EARTHQUAKE AND BASIC DEISGN PHILOSOPHIES


Behaviour of bridges in earthquake and basic deisgn philosophies1

BEHAVIOUR OF BRIDGES IN EARTHQUAKE AND BASIC DEISGN PHILOSOPHIES

The performance-based crit. to provide ductile failure  usually require two level design:

  • to ensure service performance of B for earthquake with small magnitude that can occur several times during service life;

  • is to prevent collapse under severe earthquake with small probability of occ. during service life of bridge.


Development of performance based criteria is obtained through following steps

Development of performance-based criteria is obtained through following steps:

  • Establish post-earthquake performance requirements.

  • Determine B specific loads and various combinations.

  • Determine materials and their properties.

  • Determine analysis method for evaluation of demands.

  • Determine detailed procedures for evaluation of capacity.

  • Establish detailed performance acceptance criteria.


Behaviour of bridges in earthquake and basic deisgn philosophies2

BEHAVIOUR OF BRIDGES IN EARTHQUAKE AND BASIC DEISGN PHILOSOPHIES

  • EC 8 seismic resistance (SR) requir. That emergency communications shall be maintained, after the design seismic event (SDE).

  • Non-collapse req. (ultimate limit state): after SDE the bridge shall retain its structural integrity, at some parts considerable damage may occur.

  • Deck shall be protected from plastic hinges and unseating under extreme displacements only minor damage without reduction of the traffic or the need of immediate repair. Capacity design shall be used to provide the hierarchy configuration of plastic hinges in piers.


Conceptual design

CONCEPTUAL DESIGN

  • Majority of Codes relates to modeling and analysis elements and structures (E/S). Only rarely they deal with conceptual design (Russian and Swiss).

  • Russian Code beam system are recommended. The arch bridges can be applied only in rock terrains. In the IXth zone MCS scale precast concrete, composite-monolithic and concrete structure bearings is recom.

  • Swiss Code local damage - destruction of bearings or expansion joints tolerated provided that the superstructure is prevented from falling


Conceptual design1

CONCEPTUAL DESIGN

  • Bridges should be as straight as possible. Skew angle should be as small as possible.Curved bridges complicate seismic responses.

  • Vibrations along the axis of a skew bridge cause torsional response - large rotation demands on piers heads. In single pier bridges, an eccentricity between the deck and pier axis would also lead to torsional response.

  • Behaviour of continuous B`s is better than other types. Necessary restrainers and sufficient seat width should be provided between adjacent bents at all expansion joints.

Conceptual design2

CONCEPTUAL DESIGN

  • B`s are long period structures - effected by higher modes.

  • Adjacent bents or piers should be design to minimize the differences in fundamental periods, and to avoid drastic changes in stiffness and strength in both longitudinal and transverse directions.

  • Stiffer frame receives greater part of load.

  • The pier causing the most irregular effect due to its stiffness and damaged first (unequal pier heights) in special situation of full isolation applied.


Conceptual design3

CONCEPTUAL DESIGN

It is recommended that:

  • Effective stiffness between any two columns within a bent, does not vary by a factor of more than 2.

  • Ratio of the shorter fundamental period to the longer ones for adjacent frames in the longitudinal and transverse directions should be larger than 0.7.

  • Balanced mass and stiffness distribution in a frame results in a good response. Irregularities in geometry increase complex nonlinear response.

Protection of bridge structures

PROTECTION OF BRIDGE STRUCTURES

  • Concrete B design to direct inelastic damage into columns, pier walls, and abutments.

  • The superstructure should sufficient over-strength to remain essentially elastic if piers reach plastic M capacity

  • Seismic protection devices-energy dissipation and isolation at approp. location provide good behaviour.

Conclusions

CONCLUSIONS

  • The basic philosophy for seismic design of ordinary bridges is that for small to moderate earthquakes the bridges should resist within the elastic range without significant damage, while for large earthquake must prevent collapse.

  • In current design practice the changes are necessary to incorporate improved design procedure, especially Perf. B S D.

  • It is very important to analyse plane layout and layout in elevation of BS in preliminary phase to respect presented recommendations.
