There may exist deficiencies in current codes for strong-shear braced frame designed by amplifying design force of braces artificially.The weakshear brace design was thereby developed to solve the problem.The nonlinear elastic-plastic time-history responses of the two types of frames under 10 earthquake records were analyzed by using finite element analysis(FEA) method.Results show that columns in strong-shear braced frames will buckle in a non-sway mode before yielding of the braces,and then… CONTINUE READING
