Third International Bridge Seismic Workshop to be held in Seattle, WA, USA on October 1-4, 2019.
This workshop is organized by IABEE with co-hosts, Tongji University, University of Washington, and Washington State DOT.

Workshop Theme:

Seismic Hazard Mitigation Measures and Strategies of Transportation Infrastructures​

The theme is 'Mitigation Measure and Strategies', however, we look for all kinds of new and innovative measures as well as concepts to mitigate transportation infrastructures; including but not limited to the below topics:

​1. Structural

- Design and Analysis of Major Bridges for Earthquakes and Other Natural Hazards

- Seismic Performance Requirements of Lifeline Bridges

- Design and Use of Seismic Isolation Bearings

- Innovations in Seismic Design and Analysis

- Seismic Design Details for Accelerated Bridge Construction

- Seismic Retrofit of Bridges

- Widening of Bridges in Seismic Regions

2. Bridge Performance

- Post-Earthquake Response, Repair and Recovery

- Use of Innovative Technologies and Materials for Improved Bridge Resilience (other than Isolation Technology)

- Bridge Fragility and Highway Network Seismic Risk Assessment

- Performance based Seismic Design Criteria

- Monitor of Bridge Performance in Extreme Events

3. Geotechnical

- Seismic Design and Retrofit of Foundations

- Earthquake Induced Earth Pressure

- Liquefaction, Lateral Spreading, and Ground Movement

4. Hazards

- Seismic Hazard Effects: Ground Motion, Attenuation, Directionality, Vertical Attenuation, Near Fault, Fault Rupture, Long Duration, and Subduction

- Tsunami Loads and Design Criteria

- Lessons Learned from Recent Earthquakes and Other Extreme Events

- Multi-Hazard Design

- Innovations in the Development of Site Specific Seismic Hazards Assessment
