Inelastic behavior and seismic collapse prevention performance of low-ductility steel braced frames (2017-04-19)Seismic-force-resisting systems (SFRSs) in areas of low and moderate seismicity such as the east coast of the United States have minimal ductility. Unlike high-ductility systems, whose design encompasses extensive seismic ...
