Seismic Vulnerability Assessment of Long-Span Cable-Stayed Bridges
As important junction in lifeline transportation system, bridges are the most seismic vulnerable components. Based on the capacity/demand (C/D) analysis of bridge components, a practical method is established for seismic fragility assessment of long-span cable-stayed bridges. Depending on this approach, the seismic vulnerability assessment of the Wangdong Bridge, a cable-stayed bridge with a main span of 638m in Anhui Province, is conducted, and the feasibility of the approach is verified.
