Abstract

This report is the result of the contribution of the JRC towards the LESSLOSS Final Report on "Guidelines for Displacement-based Design of Buildings and ", edited by M. N. Fardis and printed by the IUSS Press of the Istituto Universitario Superiore di Pavia. The report is divided into three sections. The first section focuses on the aims and limitations of current seismic evaluation and design practice and the tendencies of the displacement-based seismic evaluation/design methods. The second section presents the secant stiffness and equivalent viscous damping properties of reinforced concrete hollow rectangular bridge piers, both evaluated at maximum pier displacement, while the third section addresses how to determine the deformability or stiffness of bridge piers resulting from the relative contributions of flexural and shear deformations.
