The curved bridge project tested nine different configurations to investigate the seismic effects of multi-span curved bridges using a 2/5 scale model of a three-span bridge.
This project integrates multidisciplinary system-level studies to develop a novel simulation capability and implementation process for enhancing the seismic performance of the ceiling-piping-partition system.
The NEES@University of Nevada, Reno equipment site is funded in part by the Geoge E. Brown, Jr. Network for Earthquake Engineering Simulation (NEES) Program of the National Earthquake Hazards Reduction Program (NEHRP) of the National Science Foundation (NSF) under Award Number CMMI-0927178.
