The loss of deck support is a major parameter contributing to increasing seismic vulnerability of bridges. The support length at bridge abutments, piers, or span joints required to prevent the loss of deck support is function of pier height, span length, bridge skew, and seismic performance category of the bridge. The objectives of this study are to describe and quantify the impact of these geometric parameters on bridge vulnerability due to a loss of deck support and to develop fragility curves. The fragility curves provide the probability of reaching a level of damage, in terms of support loss, based on a seismic intensity parameter.
