Abstract

Title: International Hybrid Simulation of Tomorrow's Braced Frame Systems. (NEES-2008-0570)

Year Of Curation: 2012

Description: There were four braced frame specimens in this special concentric braced frame test program. Each test specimen consisted of a two-story, single bay concentric braced frame which was designed and detailed in compliance with the 2005 AISC Seismic Provisions for Structural Steel Buildings. The story height was 9 feet tall measured from beam center line to center line distance and the bay width was 20 feet long measured from column center line to center line. The roof beam, two columns and base plates were re-used after the testing of TCBF-B-1 and TCBF-B-3 specimen. The first three specimens were tested under quasi-static loading while the last specimen was tested using hybrid simulation techniques.
