Abstract: These Proceedings are the result of the first in a series of international workshops on seismic analysis and design of special bridges collaboratively arranged by MCEER and the State Key Laboratory for Disaster Reduction in Civil Engineering, Tongji University, Shanghai, China. The workshop themes include seismic design and retrofit of long span bridges, performance based design, seismic safety evaluation, soil-pile-structure interaction and pseudo-dynamic and hydrodynamic experimental study. This volume contains 22 papers addressing a wide range of these research fields, and including a discussion of seismicity in China. The workshop agenda and list of participants is also included.
