Abstract

This paper focusses on the seismic response of a bridge currently being constructed, using the incremental launching method, as part of the Egnatia motorway in northern Greece. The bridge is seismically isolated via elastomeric and PTFE bearings, and has fluid dampers installed at its end abutments. The scope of the paper is firstly the seismic analysis (using methods adopted also in practical design), and secondly the assessment of the bridge's earthquake performance (using advanced inelastic time-history analysis).
