Synergistic activities

  • Lead author of the seismic provisions in the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) LRFD Comprehensive Bridge Specifications (1998, 2007), the AASHTO Guide Specifications for Seismic Isolation Design (Fourth Ed., 2014), and the Federal Highway Administration Seismic Retrofitting Manual for Highway Structures (2006).
  • Currently Principal Investigator for two interdisciplinary, large-scale, experimental projects, one related to tsunami inundation of coastal bridges and the other to soil-structure interaction of deep foundations and embedded structures.
  • Member of earthquake reconnaissance teams to California, Chile, Costa Rica, Japan, and Taiwan.
  • Co-instructor for short courses in LRFD seismic analysis and design of bridges for the National Highway Institute, as well as short courses, seminars, and webinars in seismic retrofitting and seismic isolation of highway bridges and buildings.
