The pushover analysis is a tool for designing new bridges as well as assessing and retrofitting seismically deficient structures. With more and more emphasis being laid on displacements (rather than forces), this analysis provides a convenient and simple approach to seismic analysis and design.
This seminar presented the concept of the pushover analysis, different ways of carrying out this analysis (such as using linear analysis employing a step-wise approach or the fully automated non‐linear approach), and its utility (for new designs and retrofits).
