Effect of spatial variability of earthquakes on cable-stayed bridges

Efthymiou, E. and Camara, A. (2017). Effect of spatial variability of earthquakes on cable-stayed bridges. Paper presented at the X International Conference on Structural Dynamics, EURODYN 2017, 10-13 Sep 2017, Rome, Italy.

Abstract

This paper focuses on the effect of spatially variable ground motions on the towers of cable-stayed bridges with 200, 400 and 600m main spans. Seismic analysis of the bridges is performed, taking account of different sources of the spatial variability, namely; incoherence and wave passage effects. To address these effects, the response of the towers is assessed under the effect of different propagation velocities of the seismic waves and different assumptions on the coherency of the ground motion, to conclude that the effect of spatially variable motions on the seismic response of cable-stayed bridges is dependent on the assumed wave propagation velocity and rate of coherency.
