Project Description:

Inverted Tee

Please, click on the above title (Inverted Tee) to get a detailed description of the project. The goal of this project is to understand the true seismic behavior of the cap-to-girder connection as currently used and to mitigate the potential seismic hazard associated with these bridges.
