Abstract

A self-centring bridge pier is a combination of elastic recovery devices and internal or external energy dissipaters. During the cyclic loading test, it is proved that the self-centring system can minimize the residual drift of the pier whereas holding sufficient energy dissipate capacity as well as bearing capacity. It is worth noting that a simplified analytical model is proposed based on the experimental response regarding flexural deformation, unbounded length of mild steels and strain penetration. Comparison between the analytical model and test results has indicated that a reasonable envelope of the cyclic behavior of the system can be achieved by the model presented.
