Abstract

An experiment and a numerical analysis were carried out in order to examine the earthquake resistance of a new type viaduct structure. The experiment was a dynamic centrifuge modeling which used the viaduct model of the rates 1/50 of a scale. The 3-dimensional finite element analysis was performed in order to confirm the results of the dynamic centrifuge modeling. At the results, new knowledge was obtained with regard to the viaduct structure.
