A review of major research performed in the eld of earthquake engineering of bridges
during the past decade is presented with a focus on computational modeling. Topics covered include
nonlinear simulation, hazard analysis, passive, active, and hybrid control of bridges, bridge damage
studies, health monitoring of bridges, bridge management, and retro tting of bridges. Important
conclusions of interest to the bridge engineering community reported in the articles are noted.
