Design Philosophy and Parametric Collapse Performance of Low-Ductility Concentrically Braced Frames with Reserve Capacity.

Bradley, Cameron.


  • In recent decades, the priority of seismic design practice in moderate-seismic regions has inadvertently shifted away from the protection of life-safety in favor of cost-effective low-ductility design solutions such as the R = 3 and OCBF systems. This state-of-practice is unreliable because the performance capabilities of these low-ductility systems are not properly substantiated by experimental ... read more
