Short summary
This study focuses on the determination of seismic behavior and safety of specific bridges under seismic conditions. One of the nine intensity measures is selected considering practicality, efficiency, and proficiency. Component and system fragility curves are derived considering serviceability limits and component capacity. The results show that serves velocity limits has important effects on fragility curves of bridges and truss piers elements are the most vulnerable elements in the system.
