In the present study, the nonparametric method of system identification proposed by Masri et al. has been used to treat simulated earthquake response data of a bridge with nonlinear foundations. It is found that the method is promising for estimation of functions which represent the dynamic characteristics of bridges and provides a sound basis for study of the safety assessment of a bridge by using earthquake response data of the bridge.
