Bridge bearings support large loads while accommodating movements. If they are improperly used, built or designed, severe damage to the structure may occur. This paper discusses a research program set up to develop a better understanding of the behavior of bridge bearings and to establish improved specifications. The program is now in its 4th phase. This paper provides a brief overview of the first two phases of this research, a more detailed description of the recently completed 3rd phase, and a description of the progress on the 4th and final phase.
