Research on Seismic Performance of the Steel-Braced Frame


Article Preview

With the purpose of comprehending the seismic performance of steel-braced frame system better and more comprehensivly, the paper overviewed and summarized the hysteretic performance,ductility and energy dissipation performance of the steel-braced frame based on a large number of abroad documents.The force was on the seismic performance of steel-braced frame in different supporting forms and the insufficiency in the research.
