Performance of Cross Bracings under Reverse Cyclic Loading

Abstract:

Article Preview

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.
