Abstract

The geotechnical engineering analyses carried out for the seismic safety retrofit design of Second Narrows Bridge located in Vancouver, Canada, are presented. The work involved detailed ground response analyses to evaluate the liquefaction potential of site soils, the development of a series of numerical models to assess the pattern and magnitude of liquefaction-induced ground displacements, and to analytically evaluate the ground displacements with potential ground improvements.

Seismic Safety Retrofit of Second Narrows Bridge Foundations Geotechnical Design Aspects

St. Louis, Missouri

The geotechnical engineering analyses carried out for the seismic safety retrofit design of Second Narrows Bridge located in Vancouver, Canada, are presented. The work involved detailed ground response analyses to evaluate the liquefaction potential of site soils, the development of a series of numerical models to assess the pattern and magnitude of liquefaction-induced ground displacements, and to analytically evaluate the ground displacements with potential ground improvements.
