Açıklama : Seismic performance of seismically isolated bridges with inverted T-cap beams are not studied in depth until now. In practice, design engineers usually prefer to utilize elastic response spectrum analysis in design. Such practical analysis method can not account for seismic pounding of adjacent spans. In this study, it has been demonstrated that analysis with elastic response spectrum method may result in significant underestimation of design forces. Nonlinear time history analysis performed with response spectrum compatible earthquake records are usually more representative of design forces with pounding effects. The pounding effect may be mitigated by use of different design details at bridges with inverted T cap beams.
