SEISMIC DESIGN OF THE COOPER RIVER BRIDGE

This paper discusses the main aspects of the performance-based seismic design of the new Cooper River Bridge. Specifically, the discussions include the following subjects: (1) site response analysis; (2) soil-structural-foundation (interaction) modeling methodology; (3) 3-dimensional inelastic nonlinear time history analysis using spatially varying ground motions; (4) foundation design methodology to accommodate the potential for liquefaction and scour; (5) foundation design strategy to deal with the effect of lateral spread; and (6) performance-based seismic design of embankments.
