Pushover analysis application development is greatly increased in recent years and numerous advanced methods to evaluate the seismic pushover are provided. Because these methods have been proposed mainly for building structures and given the fundamental differences between the behavior of bridge structures and buildings using pushover methods on the bridge structure with the uncertainties faced. 1. First, the effect of non-linear pushover results (time history) 2. Choose a target displacement

Thus a pushover analysis is presented for evaluation of seismic bridge pylons and deck where the effects of displacement and deformation of the plastic joints, structural changes in the modal characteristics of change used plastic forms and effects of higher modes can be seen clearly. The method is able to accurately approximate the dynamic response of the nonlinear analysis. Ultimately this method compared with analysis time history.
