Title: Innovative Economical Foundations with Improved Performance that is Less Sensitive to Site Conditions (NEES-2009-0565)
Year Of Curation: 2011
Description: This research project started with investigating innovative foundations that improve performance of bridges during earthquakes with behavior that is less sensitive to site conditions. The investigators considered a variety of foundation shapes and types, but rapidly converged to focus on rocking shallow spread foundations as an optimum target.
