Development of Self-Stabilizing Links for Eccentrically Braced Frames

This paper highlights aspects of the development of self-stabilizing links having tubular cross-sections for use in eccentrically braced frames (EBF’s). EBF’s utilizing this type of link could be used in bridge piers or other applications where lateral bracing to prevent lateral torsional buckling is difficult to provide. The development of design… CONTINUE READING
