Design of Stability Connections for Beams Used in Steel Seismic Frames

The AISC Seismic Provisions (AISC 341-10) require lateral bracing for beams used in seismic frames. This presentation will summarize the bracing requirements given in AISC 341 for brace locations adjacent to and away from plastic hinge locations. Design examples for two different types of connectionsÑÒlateralÓ bracing and ÒtorsionalÓ bracingÑwill be presented. Differences in the connection design approaches for equal depth beams and unequal depth beams will also be discussed.
