Seismic vulnerability assessment of a 18-not reinforced concrete arched railway bridge spans that extends for a total length of about 471m.

Seismic vulnerability assessment of a 18-not reinforced concrete arched railway bridge spans that extends for a total length of about 471m. The verification was conducted through software capable of modeling the concrete through a constitutive link "total straining crack model" that simulates brittle behavior of the concrete. The scope of work also included the design of seismic adjustment actions, and the determination of the seismic risk index value post adjustment.
