Article Preview

Earthquake codes have been revised and updated in recent years. The issue and implementation of the guidelines for seismic design of bridges have attracted interests and attentions of many researchs at home and abroad. In this paper, it is compared that the provisions about performance criteria, seismic design categories, response spectrum and earthquake action between guidelines for seismic design of highway bridges and Eurocode 8 for bridges. The main purpose of this study is to investigate the differences caused by the two codes in performance criteria, seismic design categories, response spectrum and earthquake action. The results indicate that it is similar in performance criteria, seismic design categories and response spectrum between guidelines for seismic design of highway bridges and Eurocode 8 for bridges. Based on the lessons learned from significant earthquakes in the last few years, the existing problems of the current code are pointed, and the trends of future study are discussed.
