Some Aspects of Bridge Instrumentationby Emmanuel Maragakis, Univ of Nevada-Reno, Reno, NV, USA,

Abstract: This paper provides some guidelines about the proper arrangement of strong motion instruments for the proper assessment of some particular phenomena that have been either observed in past earthquakes or revealed as the result of theoretical studies. These phenomena concern the interaction between the bridge deck and the abutments which is particularly important for short skew bridges and the change in the rotational stiffness of pile groups over several cycles of loading tending towards a stabilized value.
