Abstract

Theoretical dynamic characteristics of the Fatih Bridge in terms of natural frequencies and mode shapes of free vibration were obtained using a range of finite element models. Based on this free-vibration data, separate analyses of the asynchronous response of the bridge to earthquake excitation in three orthogonal axes with different speeds of wave propagation, and of stochastic response to vertical excitation were used to estimate levels of dynamic response due to seismic loading.
