Seismic analysis of knee elements for steel frames

Abstract:

The 1994 Northridge and 1995 Kobe earthquakes, which were moderate in seismological terms, showed that many buildings were subjected to demolition or very expensive repairs because of severe damage in principle members, mainly in the column-beam connections. As a result, the development of dissipative systems was encouraged, which limit the damage parts to easily replaceable elements, in case of moderate earthquakes. One such system is the knee braced frame. Knee braced frames are a modified ...
