ERBS - EARTHQUAKE RESISTANT BRIDGE SYSTEMS. A COORDINATED RESEARCH INITIATIVE

Many existing bridges, particularly those in eastern and central United States, have not been designed nor detailed adequately for seismic resistance. The purpose of ERBS is to: identify the vulnerability of typical short to medium span bridges in zones of low to medium seismicity; develop appropriate retrofit methods; and undertake theoretical and experimental research to quantify seismic strength and performance of existing bridges.
