Performance-based Plastic Design of Steel Concentric Braced Frames for Enhanced Confidence Level

Abstract

Concentrically braced steel frames (CBFs) are very efficient and commonly used steel structures for resisting seismic loads because they provide complete truss action. Based on research performed during the last twenty years or so, current U.S. seismic codes now include provisions to design ductile concentric braced frames called Special Concentrically… (More)
