PROCEEDINGS OF THE THIRD U.S.-JAPAN WORKSHOP ON EARTHQUAKE PROTECTIVE SYSTEMS FOR BRIDGES

This report presents the results of a workshop which addressed both American and Japanese developments in earthquake protective systems for bridges. Also explored was the potential for future cooperation between the two countries in the design and application of intelligent systems for the protection of bridges. The volume includes thirty-four technical papers and two state-of-the-art reports. Six of the technical papers concern passive bridge protection systems, such as various types of base isolation bearings, damping devices and sliding isolation systems. Seven papers treat hybrid protective systems, including active mass drivers, variable stiffness control, and the use of electrorheological fluids for variable dampers. Another thirteen papers focus on a variety of design issues and examples.
