Design of Multi-tiered Braced Frames [M5]

Multi-tiered braced frames (MT-BFs) consist of multiple vertically oriented bracing panels that lack intersecting perpendicular framing or diaphragms at the levels between the bracing panels. Due to the ductility demands during a seismic event these frames require special consideration. This presentation will discuss the applicable sections of the AISC Seismic Provisions and the latest developments related to the design and performance of MT-BFs.
