Design Guide 29, Vertical Bracing Connections--Analysis and Design, provides guidance for the design of vertical brace connections. The guide includes an overview of the design philosophy of common bracing systems based on structural principles. Using the lower bound theorem of limit analysis and the uniform force method, the guide addresses: brace-to-gusset connection, orthogonal and nonorthogonal connections, chevron or K-bracing, eccentric braces, connections at column base plates, both nonseismic and seismic conditions, and gusset plate stability. Design Guide 29 also includes over a dozen extensive, complete design examples with every applicable limit state addressed.
