An Experimental Study on Double-Tube Bucking Restrained Braces with Contact Rings
The paper designs the models of double-tube BRBs with contact rings by applying the existing general materials and carries out an experimental research on static properties, exploring on its bearing performance under the condition of unidirectional loading and the relationship between the bearing performance and the stiffness of outer-tube, clearance and slenderness ratio of inner-tube, so as to provide references for the engineering application of double-tube BRBs with contact rings.
