Abstract

This report addresses the problem of the Displacement Based Evaluation/Design (DBE/D) of reinforced concrete bridges. Throughout the report, the aims and limitations of current seismic evaluation and design practice and the tendencies of the displacement-based seismic evaluation/design are discussed. It presents a state-of-the-art review on the most important results and lessons derived from previous works, and based on them, two evaluation/design methods consistent with the performance-based seismic design philosophy are presented.
