The Application of E Shaped Steel Bearing on the Simply Supported Beam Bridge
To study the application of E shaped steel bearing on the simply supported beam bridge, the Xinhua bridge is analyzed by the nonlinear time-history method and the Midas/Civil software, considering the interaction between pile and soil. The related data are obtained through two computational models. And the data are compared in this paper. The results show that the bending moments and shear forces of the bottom of the fixed pier are reduced, due to using the E shaped steel bearing at the fixed pier. The E shaped steel bearing dissipates the earthquake energy and reduces the earthquake response of the bridge.
