Advances Toward Characteristic Overstrength Factors for Buckling Restrained Braced Frames [N34]

This session will present a broad overview of the research conducted for overstrength factors associated with buckling restrained braces of all common connection types and from multiple manufacturers. Empirical data is used to generate design-level equations for establishing BRB overstrength. Theoretical equations for BRB overstrength are also presented and compared to empirical data for possible use in design or preliminary design. The practicing engineer will gain an understanding of appropriate design overstrength factors for Buckling Restrained Braces of various connection types.
