Seismic Design for Buckling-Restrained Braced Frames Based on AISC 360-05 & AISC 341-05

DESIGN CRITERIA
1. Bracing member self shall be composed of a structural steel core & a system that restrains the steel core from buckling.
The each end of brace to gusset plate may be standard bolted connections, modified bolted connections, or true pin
connections. Selecting bracing members are based on the tested & approved manufacture's lists.
2. The lateral capacity of BRBF, selected bracing members with steel beams and columns, must also be checked by a special
loads combination of DL + LL + 2 x (AISC 341-05, 16.2b, 16.5b & ASCE 7-05, 12.8.6).

3. For the connection of gusset plate to beam and column, the interface dimensions of and may not satisfy the basic
relationship of the Uniform Force Method: - tan = eb tan - ec. This software can determine gusset dimensions
based on geometry and can check the gusset interface weld capacities with moment loads.
