Analysis of piled bridges at sites prone to liquefaction and lateral spreading in New Zealand

Published: | Category: Structures (bridges & culverts) , Research & reports | Audiences: Road traffic engineers & consultants, Roading contractors

This report presents a summary of the outcomes of a follow-on project to a research project commissioned by the NZ Transport Agency that culminated in the publication of research report 553 The development of design guidance for bridges in New Zealand for liquefaction and lateral spreading effects.

This project has involved summarising the pseudo-static approach developed in the research project for the analysis of bridge foundations on sites prone to liquefaction and presents two examples of the evaluation of the liquefaction hazard and two examples of the analysis of piled bridges on sites prone to liquefaction. This report is intended for engineers who are familiar with geotechnical and structural design practice for static and seismic loading of bridges.
