Abstract

A brief description of the New Tagus Bridge is presented. The main site geological conditions and the field and laboratory tests are described. The seismic studies related to the design spectra, the liquefaction potential assessment and the seismic pile analysis are presented. The pile load tests (both static and dynamic) carried out on trial piles are described. The objectives of reception tests for piles and monitoring during the construction phase and the long term are presented.
