The objective will be to allow participants to formulate design limit states appropriate to the establishment of performance-based limit states. Design procedures for ductile frames, concentric and eccentric braced frames and buckling restrained braces will be developed. Emphasis will be on the creative development of bracing systems that respect functional aesthetic and economic objectives of complex building projects. The student will conceptually develop designs that should survive significant post yield displacements.
