Paper Title:
Performance of Cross Bracings under Reverse Cyclic Loading
  Abstract

Steel braces are widely used in seismic retrofit of buildings. However, their tendency of buckling under compression impairs their efficacy. In this paper, characteristics of a cross bracing with rigid intersection, including its bearing capacity, hysteretic property and fracture ductility are investigated. With the analysis results, performance-based design requirements of a steel cross bracing are proposed based on its width-thickness ratio and effective slenderness ratio.
