This paper describes the development of seismic design provisions of highway bridges will be revised in Taiwan reflecting the destructive damage in the 1999 Chi-Chi earthquake. After the Chi-Chi earthquake, the revised seismic design force and other related requirements in the seismic design code for highway bridges are developed in Taiwan. In addition to the conventional force based design, a capacity checking level is considered for the near-fault sites by limiting the ultimate capacity to exceed the maximum possible seismic demand. The development of seismic design force and the capacity check method are described.
