Stability Bracing for Beams in Steel SFRSs [N5A]

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 connections--""lateral"" bracing and ""torsional"" bracing--will be presented. Differences in the connection design approaches for equal depth beams and unequal depth beams will also be discussed.
