Under severe earthquakes, steel concentrically braced frames (SCBFs) will experience large inelastic deformations in an uncontrolled manner. According to the energy-work balance concept, a performance-based plastic design (PBPD) methodology for steel concentrically braced frames was presented here. This method uses pre-selected target drift and yield… CONTINUE READING
