SEISMIC ANALYSIS OF BEAM-TYPE PRESTRESSED CONCRETE BRIDGES IN SUDAN
methods, direct integration time history analysis and response spectrum analysis.
A computer program has been developed in MATLAB and was used to analyze the problem under research. The Commercial Structural Analysis SAP2000 program was also used for the comparative study and it was found that it
gave typical results. The developed software has been found to be efficient, reliable and easy to apply.
It was found that bridge response in terms of displacements, shear and moments was directly proportional to the peak
ground acceleration (PGA).
