Abstract:A new redundancy factor from probabilistic theory of performance evaluation is derived and determined for all of the calculated braced frames. The new redundancy factors are compared with the redundancy factors currently required by code. Fragility curves are also calculated for each building. Conclusions are drawn in order to contribute to future structural design.
