Abstract

Earthquake-induced structural pounding in bridge structures has been observed in several previous seismic events. Collisions occur at the expansion joints provided between adjacent decks or between the deck and abutment. Pounding between the structural elements may lead to severe damages and even to the unseating of the bridge in certain cases. Several investigations have been performed to study pounding in bridges under uniform and non-uniform seismic excitations. Moreover, different mitigation measures have been suggested to overcome the drawbacks of this phenomenon. This work reviews previous research studies concerning earthquake-induced structural pounding in bridge structures, the factors that influence it and the recommended mitigation measures.
