Seismic Design for Buckling-Restrained Braced Frames Based on AISC 360-05 & AISC 341-05 1

Seismic Design for Buckling-Restrained Braced Frames Based on AISC 360-05 & AISC 341-05

Buckling-restrained Braced Frames (BRBF) are a new and effective Seismic Load Resisting System (SLRS) for engineers designing buildings for ductile seismic performance. … Engineers design members that will exhibit ductility by limiting element slenderness ratios, thereby preventing local buckling.
