Paper Title:
Seismic Analysis of a Low Tower Cable-Stayed Bridge and Application of Lead Shear Damper
  Abstract

A low tower cable-stayed bridge with a span of 30m+60m+120m+60m+30m had been built before Guidelines for Seismic Design of Highway Bridge was promulgated. Because of its impor¬tance and specificity, it is necessary to do research on seismic performance of this bridge. According to the numerical analysis, it is found that the structural response exceeds the allowance and the bridge might be destroyed if earthquake happened. Here, energy dissipated technology is chosen to cope with this problem. But traditional lead shear damper hasn’t the capabilities of large deformation for some reason and can not be applied to bridge engineering in general case. In this article, a new type of lead shear damper with capabilities of large deformation is used to achieve energy dissipation. Through comparing, it is found that the damping effect of this new damper is as good as that of viscous damper. And the damper has no problem with leakage and metamorphism. What’s more, it is much cheaper than vis¬cous damper. So, lead shear damper has a good prospect in bridge damping.
