Experimental Study of the Steel Type Buckling Restrained Braces
In the domestic and international, experimental study for the Buckling Restrained Braces(BRBs) focuses on concrete type BRBs at present, but the type of BRB has a larger weight, and can change structure vibration characteristics, thus puts forward a new type BRB which is no longer filling in with concrete between kernel and outer components, meanwhile under monotonic loading and cycle repeated loading tests for the new BRBs, the experimental results show that the steel type BRB has good energy dissipation capacity, and can be applied to structure as passive control device.
