This book contains the full papers on which the invited lectures of the 4th International Conference on Geotechnical Earthquake Engineering (4ICEGE) were based. The conference was held in Thessaloniki, Greece, from 25 to 28 June, 2007. The papers offer a comprehensive overview of the progress achieved in soil dynamics and geotechnical earthquake engineering, examine ongoing and unresolved issues, and discuss ideas for the future.For partially correlated bridges closed form equation does not exist and the joint probability of damage needs to be evaluated ... The real challenge is in evaluating the probability density function (PDF) of loss for all bridges in the network system for a given event. ... For a given event Qj, j =1, 2, ..., N, the total loss resulting from damage to components (bridges) of the network is the sum of all the losses.
