Problems associated with direct displacement-based design of concrete bridges with single-column piers, and some suggested improvements

Article English OPEN
Kappos, A. J.; Gidaris, I.G.; Gkatzogias, K.I.;

Currently available displacement-based design (DBD) procedures for bridges are critically evaluated with a view to identifying extensions and/or modifications of the procedure, for it to be applicable to final design of a fairly broad class of bridges. An improved direc... View more
