Purpose of the Webinar
Seismic Analysis, Demand and Capacity Evaluation of Highway Bridges

This webinar discussed the methods used for seismic analysis, demand and capacity evaluation using a three dimensional mode. The model incorporated soil-structure interaction and generation of moment-curvature curve. Non-linear material properties and plastic hinge properties of members were demonstrated and discussed. The capacity spectrum method used to efficiently evaluate non-linear seismic response and performance.
