Proceedings Available from Third National Seismic Conference

The Proceedings of the Third National Seismic Conference and Workshop on Bridges and Highways focus on the latest advancements in earthquake design and retrofit for bridges, highway systems and components. The conference is the third in a series, following events held in Sacramento in 1997 and San Diego in 1995. This third proceedings volume focuses on seismic events, lessons learned and design code developments that have taken place since 1997 (see review ).

The 600-plus page proceedings contain 44 full-length papers and 17 poster session papers on the following topics:

  • Lessons learned from recent earthquakes (since 1998)

  • Seismic design practices/specifications

  • Design of major bridges in high and moderate seismicity areas

  • Effects of near field earthquakes on bridges

  • International forum on advanced earthquake design and mitigation technologies and approaches

  • Seismic practices for transportation structures and systems

  • Displacement based design

  • Emerging seismic design and retrofit technologies

  • Development and testing of the new LRFD seismic design of highway bridges.

The proceedings are $40.00. To order, contact at (716) 645-3395, or online.
