Basis of Design

In accordance with AISC 341-16, OCBF are expected to provide limited inelastic deformation capacity in their members and connections.

Members

Basic Requirements

Braces should provide the requirements of Section D1.1 for moderately ductile members.

Slenderness

Braces in V or inverted-V configurations should provide eq. F1-1.

Beams

The required strength of beams and their connections are determined with load combinations included the overstrength seismic load.

Connections

Brace Connections

The required strength of diagonal brace connections are determined with load combinations included the overstrength seismic load.
