Tag: Limitations on Concentric Braced Frames Seismic-Design Limitations on Steel Frames

A wide range of special seismic design requirements are specified for steel frames to ensure that they achieve the ductility and behavior required for the structural system and the design forces used for the system. Use of systems with poor or uncertain seismic performance is restricted or prohibited for some applications. Most of these requirements are specified in the ‘‘Seismic Provisions for Structural Steel
