Abstract This paper presents an analytical prediction of seismic performance of reinforced concrete bridge piers with lap splices, using a fiber beam-column element with a plastic hinge model. The fiber hysteresis rule of the beam-column element is derived from the uniaxial constitutive relations of concrete and reinforcing steel fibers. Inelastic deformation in a plastic hinge region results in plastic rotation. The plastic hinge mainly depends on nonlinear characteristics such as lap splices. In particular, the bond-slip behavior of lap spliced reinforcing bars, dominantly developed with the occurrence of cracking at the end face in a column, is taken into account by defining the relationship between the steel stress and the bond-slip. The proposed numerical method for seismic performance assessment of reinforced concrete bridge piers with lap splices is verified by comparison with reliable experimental and analytical results.
