Based on the shortcomings of the continuous girder bridge with single column pier, two-span T-shape rigid-frame bridges with single integral pier and two separated piers are put forward in this paper. Using time-history analysis and considering the material nonlinearity of reinforced concrete of the pier, the nonlinear seismic responses of the three bridge structures subjected to horizontal seismic wave are analyzed. The results show that, compared with continuous girder bridge, the shear forces of the two types of T-shape rigid-frame bridge are bigger, the moments of the T-shape rigid-frame bridges is smaller, and rotation angle of plastic hinge of T-shape rigid-frame bridge is much smaller. The energy dissipation and the anti-seismic capacities of T-shape rigid-frame bridges are better than continuous girder bridge under the condition that the shear resistance capacity of pier is secure.
