||In this paper the author made an examination to determine whether or not the Menshin design is applicable on soft ground by using the design seismic wave that is to be used on Type III Ground. In this examination, the following three items were major subjects: - How to determine Menshin characteristics that can attain a sufficiently long period of motion and energy dissipation. - If it is possible to make bridge piers slimmer by the selected Menshin devices inertial force reduction effect. - Is the Menshin bridge safe even when the pier members become plastic condition during an extra large earthquake?.(AU)|
