FUNDAMENTAL STUDY ON THE EARTHQUAKE RESISTANCE DESIGN FOR CAISSON FOUNDATIONS OF BRIDGES

In order to investigate the behavior of caisson foundations against static and dynamic forces, tests were conducted in seven kinds of small-sized reinforced concrete caissons at Sakura. From these tests results, the methods of analysis on linear or bilinear relation between static horizontal force and the displacement of a caisson and on its ultimate bearing capacity were introduced. Moreover, dynamic analysis of a caisson, considering the interaction with soils around it was developed and verified using the observations data of earthquakes at Sakura and the Chikumagawa Railway Bridge.
