Analyzing influence of seismic forces on viaducts according to Eurocode 8/2

Mehmed Čaušević, Peter Fajfar, Matej Fischinger, Tatjana Isaković

Abstract

The behavior of viaducts subjected to seismic action is analyzed in accordance with Eurocode (EC) 8/2. An example of viaduct is selected in such a way that it covers most possibilities that can be encountered in practice: slender, moderately stiff ad stiff piers, piers founded on piles, slender piers with shallow foundations, steep and moderately inclined cross-sectional slopes of the obstacle to be crossed by the structure. The mentioned pier types are modeled, which includes analysis of seismic load on piers for the longitudinal and transverse direction of the viaduct, and dimensioning.
