Bridge at Night
The way bridges vibrate in the wind and during earthquakes
have been researched at the EERC.
You may think
that engineers know everything about designing bridges, as
so many have been constructed and stood up for years. However,
bridge design is getting more adventurous using new unusual
features and longer spans. So, more research is needed to
find out how these structures vibrate under different loading
conditions. That includes traffic and people moving across
the bridge, as well as earthquakes and wind.
