Paper Title:
Longitudinal Seismic Forces of Long-Span Bridge
  Abstract

Based on the numerical simulation and finite element method, the longitudinal seismic action of a long-span continuous bridge is systematically analyzed. Four load cases are considered, i.e. bridge without piers, bridge with piers, neglecting friction force and combining friction force and pier scouring respectively. Calculation results show that: when considering the piers, the contribution of piers to bridge longitudinal seismic forces is depending on the concrete problems; when the friction force of rubber supports is regarded, sliding support greatly enhances the longitudinal overall rigidity of the bridge, but the force is resolved to each rubber support and can improve the stress state of the fixed support; considering effect of scouring, the elongation of piers will lead to the decrease of longitudinal overall rigidity, thereby lowering the longitudinal seismic forces. From comparison of the two piers that, the relatively flexible structure has shock absorption to a certain extent, so it is more suitable for the bridge.
