In this paper, the stochastic dynamic responses of a suspension bridge subjected to asynchronous and antisynchronous ground motions are performed. Asynchronous and antisynchronous dynamic analyses are carried out for various wave velocities of the traveling earthquake ground motion. As an example Bosporus Suspension Bridge, built in Istanbul, is chosen. Filtered white noise (FWN) ground motion model modified by Clough and Penzien is used as ground motion model. The intensity parameter for the FWN model is obtained by equating the variance of this model to the variance of the two thirds of the S16E component of Pacoima Dam record of 1971 San Fernando earthquake, applied in the vertical direction. Mean of maximum displacements and internal forces obtained from the considered analyses are compared with each other.
