Abstract: This paper suggests a new connection protocol, adding cover-plate between shear links and column, which was used to enhance moment and shear carrying capacity of beam, relax the restriction and assure the sufficiency development of plastic deformation of the link, and dissipate more earthquake energy. Considering the scale ratio of 1:3, the experimental data was achieved by a specimen under cyclic loading, which was verified by nonlinear finite element analyses. Results indicate that the new type of eccentrically braced steel frame have enough stiffness and deformation capacity, draw link away from flange of column, and dissipate more earthquake energy. The single diagonal eccentrically braced frames adopted adding cover-plate protocol will ensure sufficient lateral stiffness under ordinary circumstances, including lateral loads due to wind and moderate seismic disturbances, have preferable resisting seismic behavior under rare earthquake, and be so practical and costly that it can be easily applied in present project.

Abstract: Because the repairing work of beam and floor after earthquake were great, and the cost were higher, the generalize application of eccentrically braced steel frame were limited. A new braced steel frame system was suggested, which was energy dissipating eccentrically brace. The experimental data of new and conventional D-type eccentrically braced steel frame system were achieved by two specimens under cyclic loading. Results indicated that the new system could put off yielding, reduce earthquake input energy and breakage of the link, reduce repairing load after earthquake, and have preferable ductility and enough lateral stiffness. The new braced steel frame system which had gained patent of invention in Chinese was practical and costly that it could be applied in present project.
