Paper Title:
Research about Influence of Strength Variability on Seismic Performance of Weak Shear Type Concentrically-Braced Steel Frames
  Abstract

Influence of strength variability of braces on the weak shear type concentrically-braced steel frames is studied by pushover and nonlinear time history analysis method, which leads to a conclusion that the overstrength of brace has obviously detrimental influence on the seismic performance of the structure, induces stronger seismic reaction and higher seismic risk. Another valuable discovery is that after the area of the braces of weak shear type centrically-braced steel frames are determined according to the requirement of current codes, the designer can intentionally specify the structural steel of comparatively low strength (for example, the 2nd group in the paper taking 70% strength of steel Q235) for the brace, which can provide the structure more excellent seismic performance.
