Abstract

The need to modal semi-rigid behaviour of joints to analyze the seismic response of bridges arises when retrofitting devices such as cables or bolts are introduced in otherwise free joints or when the design takes advantage of the plastification of structural sections to impose energy dissipation though their ductile behaviour. The paper presents some preliminary results of a parametric study carried out using s1mplified computational models. Two instances where semirigid connection play a role in the seismic response of bridges have been discussed. The ongoing research from which this paper is extracted is intended to enhance understanding on the effectivness of various bridge retrofitting measures and to provide information that may be used to calibrate some ECS-2 rules. Finally, it is hoped that the development of reliable simplified techniques for nonlinear analysis will provide designers with useful tools to examine behavior and ultimately improve seismic safety in actual bridges.
