This is a reconnaissance report on the damage to bridges during the 2008 Wenchuan, China, earthquake.
Site investigation was conducted by the authors on August 10-14, 2008. Presented is a detailed discussion of
the damage to twelve bridges as well as possible damage mechanisms. Characteristics of two near-field
ground accelerations and Chinese seismic bridge design practices are also presented. An investigation of the
damage finds insufficient intensity of seismic design force, inadequate structural detailing for enhancing the
ductility capacity and an absence of unseating prevention devices.
