Abstract

Title: Behavior of Braced Steel Frames With Innovative Bracing Schemes - A NEES Collaboratory Project (NEES-2005-0024)

Year Of Curation: 2011

Description: This project intends to generate data on the behavior of braced steel frames with emphasis on a novel configuration called a zipper frame. In a zipper frame, the unbalanced forces set up as a result of buckling of the inverted V braces in compression are taken by an additional vertical element, leading to nearly simultaneous buckling of all stories. Look in the "Directory....PDF" file in Project Documentation to see a list of all files and their location for the Georgia Tech experiments.
