  1. Seismic Design Aids for Nonlinear Pushover Analysis of Reinforced Concrete and Steel Bridges

    By Jeffrey Ger, Franklin Y. Cheng

    Series: Advances in Earthquake Engineering

    Nonlinear static monotonic (pushover) analysis has become a common practice in performance-based bridge seismic design. The popularity of pushover analysis is due to its ability to identify the failure modes and the design limit states of bridge piers and to provide the progressive collapse...

  2. Structural Optimization

    Dynamic and Seismic Applications

    By Franklin Y. Cheng, Kevin Z. Truman

    Series: Structural Engineering: Mechanics and Design

    Today’s biggest structural engineering challenge is to design better structures, and a key issue is the need to take an integrated approach which balances control of costs with the requirement for handling earthquakes and other dynamic forces. Structural optimization is based on rigorous...

  3. Smart Structures

    Innovative Systems for Seismic Response Control

    By Franklin Y. Cheng, Hongping Jiang, Kangyu Lou

    An innovative concept, smart structural systems have proven to be extremely effective in absorbing damaging energy and/or counteracting potentially devastating force, thus limiting structural collapse and subsequent injury. As this technology rapidly evolves, there is an ever-increasing need for an...
