The effect of soil-structure interaction upon the response of cable-stayed bridge subjected to a strong earthquake motions is investigated. The effect is evaluated by comparing its responses to the responses of rigidly supported base condition model. The strong earthquacke motions are represented by artificial earthquake motion in which the the characteristic values of ground condition adopted in Japanese Specification for Highway Bridges (JSHB) are considered. The results indicate that the soil-structure interaction effect should not be ignored when considering the safety of a long cable-stayed bridge.
