Padma Bridge (cost: US$4 Billion) Bangladesh 6.15km-long viaduct with piers at 150m span Earthquake resilience - Institution of Civil Engineers London UK

The Padma Bridge design pursued the 'displacement based approach' for seismic resilience and implemented seismic isolation between the superstructure girder and the pier-and-foundation system.

This approach enables the principal bridge components to move relative to one another under earthquakes; thereby dissipating the large forces. Friction pendulum bearings are used to permit large relative displacements between the bridge superstructure and the bridge piers.
