|While steel truss
bridge have performed well from preventing collapse, significant damage
has left the bridge unusable until repairing could be done.
|As part of a past
MCEER study funded through the FHWA, investigating the seismic resiliency of
steel bridges, some critical deficiencies of steel bridges were
identified. They include….
significant experimental testing program was completed at the University at
Buffalo investigating the inelastic, cyclic behavior of these built-up
