Experimental Investigation of Post-Elastic Failure Mechanisms in Low-Ductility Braced Frames and the Implications for Collapse Performance

Bradley, Cameron.

Abstract: Driven largely by economic considerations, a low-ductility philosophy for building design has developed and become commonplace in regions of moderate seismic hazard. Current code provisions permit the use of these systems; however, unlike high-ductility systems, which have been studied and tested extensively, the inelastic behavior and collapse performance of low-ductility systems are no... read more
