Large-Scale Cyclic and Hybrid Simulation Testing and Development of a Controlled-Rocking Steel Building System with Replaceable Fuses (Newmark Structural Engineering Laboratory. University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign., 2010-09)Current U.S. building codes and earthquake engineering practice utilize inelasticity in the seismic force resisting system to dissipate seismic energy and protect against collapse. Inelasticity in conventional structures ...
Nonlinear behavior of controlled rocking steel-framed building systems with replaceable energy dissipating fuses (Newmark Structural Engineering Laboratory. University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign., 2010-10)This report summarizes the results of a parametric study of a controlled rocking seismic lateral resistance system that includes two steel braced frames linked by replaceable energy dissipating fuses that are engaged by ...
