During a seismic event, many bridges and other structures could be subjected to different amplitude, frequency and phase of shaking at different supports. This phenomenon can occur as a result of physical distance between supports, topographical conditions, spatial variability in ground conditions and soil-structure interaction. Some geotechnical and structural aspects of this behavior are investigated, and methods of testing are proposed.
