Abstract

Good analytical models of buckling-restrained braced frames (BRBFs) are imperative for accurately predicting structural demands under earthquake loading and designing BRBFs to withstand these demands. Analytical studies on the seismic behavior of BRBFs are being conducted at the ATLSS Center, Lehigh University to address this need. The objectives of these studies are to investigate the seismic performance of BRBFs, to evaluate existing design criteria, and to calibrate analytical models to future large-scale experiments. This paper summarizes the analytical studies and highlights important BRBF design issues.
