Cyclic performance of steel and composite bracing members
This paper describes an experimental study on the response of hollow and filled steel members to monotonic and cyclic axial loading. Monotonic tests were first performed on short specimens to establish their compressive ...
Investigation of the seismic performance of braced frames through both testing and analysis
The results of shake table tests on three concentrically-braced sub-frames are compared with a series of correlative inelastic analyses. Both transient time-history and nonlinear static (pushover) analyses are considered. ...
Behaviour of tubular steel members under cyclic axial loading
This paper examines the cyclic performance of axially-loaded tubular members used as bracing elements to provide lateral seismic resistance in steel framed structures. An experimental study into the response of members ...
Numerical model for steel brace members incorporating a fatigue model
The aim of this paper is to develop a robust numerical model for cold-formed steel square and rectangular structural hollow sections for use as axial loaded members in earthquake engineering applications. Pseudo-static ...
