    Abstract

    The vibration behaviour and seismic performance of an existing girder bridge with laminated rubber bearings is being discussed. The bridge was retrofitted by ground anchors and was verified by nonlinear dynamic analysis. As a result, ground anchors had a significant effect on improving the vibration behaviour and seismic performance of the whole bridge.
