Samoa Channel Bridge

In this preliminary study, we present the development of a high-fidelity finite element model for the Samoa Bridge located in Humboldt County, California, which is calibrated using data recorded during a strong earthquake. This carefully constructed global model is shown to capture the salient features of observed response, and, incidentally, can be utilized to assess the validity and effectiveness of existing seismic analysis and design procedures for long-span bridges.
