ABSTRACT

Short-Period Building Collapse Performance and Recommendations for Improving Seismic Design: Volume 4 -- Study of One-To-Four Story Steel Special Concentrically Braced Frame Buildings   [open pdf - 11MB]

From the Introduction: "This report describes the approach, analyses, findings, conclusions, and recommendations for one in a series of studies on the gap between analytically predicted and historically observed earthquake-induced collapse rates for short-period buildings. It presents work focused on steel special concentrically braced frame (SCBF) systems. The Applied Technology Council (ATC) was commissioned by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to conduct these studies as part of the ATC-116 Project series, 'Solutions to the Issue of Short Period Building Performance.'"
