Risk to bridges from infrequent but high consequence earthquakes from strong ground motion, fault displacement, tsunami and - to a lesser extent - fire, exits in many areas of the world. This international symposium on recent developments in bridge seismic design and retrofit provides sixteen research papers addressing aspects of earthquake resistance of bridges with some particular reference to the 2011 Great East Japan (Tohoku) earthquake and tsunami.
