SEISMIC PERFORMANCE OF CONCENTRIC BRACED STEEL FRAMES

The performance was investigated for different types of bracing system such as concentric (crossed X) bracing and eccentric (V-type) bracing using HSS sections. It was found that the concentric (X) bracing reduces more lateral displacement and thus significantly contributes to greater structural stiffness to
