Seismic Design for Eccentrically Braced Frames Based on IBC 06 & AISC 341-05

Eccentrically braced frames (EBFs) are a relatively new lateral force resisting system developed to resist seismic events in a predictable manner. Properly designed and detailed EBFs behave in a ductile manner through shear or flexural yielding of a link element.
