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.
Featured Topics - 3D Finite Element Modeling - Demand Evaluation and Capacity Determination - Pushover analysis - Soil structure interaction around the abutment and foundations
Who Attended Structural engineers/Bridge engineers working on bridge design, seismic evaluation, and other complex bridge analysis.
Benefits of this webinar 1. Modeling methods used for a seismic analysis and design 2. Modeling methods used for soil-structure Interaction at supports 3. Use of the midas Civil Gravity load effects 4. Generation of moment-curvature curves
All attendees received a certificate for 1 AIA approved Professional Development Hour.
