40. ENERGY DISSIPATION DEVICES IN BRIDGES USING HYDRAULIC DAMPERS

Specially designed energy dissipation systems are well known for improving seismic performance of structures by absorbing earthquake induced energy. In this paper, the use of linear and nonlinear hydraulic dampers is investigated in a bridge application. A two-span, skewed, cast-in-place prestressed concrete bridge with an outrigger bent is examined. The bridge is located in a highly seismic area of Southern California. It is observed that dampers alleviate the torsional movement and reduce the transverse and longitudinal movements of the superstructure.
