PARAMETRIC RESULTS FOR SEISMIC RESPONSE OF PILE SUPPORTED BRIDGE BENTS

This is the first of three reports in which the authors develop design aids and tools for estimating: 1) the effect of pile deformation on the response of bridge piers and 2) the interplay between soil, pile and pier in the seismic response of a number of different bridge types under varying soil conditions and input ground conditions. The report presents a complete set of parametric results in the form of graphs and tables for the seismic response of bridge bents supported either on a single drilled pile or on a 4x5 pile group embedded in three actual layered soil deposits. The results presented in this report are strictly applicable to linear soils and structures.
