Analysis on Seismic Behavior of Irregular High-Rise RC Structure Using Eccentrically Braces
An anti-seismic analysis about two structures (an irregular high-rise building and the previous structure using eccentrically braces) is performed to study their torsional vibration response in earthquake. The self-vibration character and relative displacement between different floors are compared. It is found that adding some eccentrically braces properly can reduce the response of torsional vibration and other seismic response of the structures efficiently. From the example mentioned in the paper, it is verified that this method is a simple and economical one.
