Abstract

The RC frame with bracings is an efficient and economical method to resist the lateral forces acting on the structure. Under the seismic loading, the conventional steel bracings buckle due to compression. Buckling restrained braces are the innovative bracing systems which show same load deformation behaviour under both compression and tension. Aim of this study is to compare the conventional steel braces and buckling restrained braces considering a 10 storey RC frame for different configuration of braces. The analysis is performed using commercially available software ETABSv2016. For different configuration of braces the response spectrum analysis is performed and the parameters such as storey drifts and base shear are evaluated for all type of bracing configuration. From the study it is concluded that BRB with the X bracings arranged in central bay perform better during earthquake event
