Abstract: The full-scale six-story concentrically K-braced steel building was subjected to Miyagi-Ken-Oki simulated earthquake whose peak intensity was 500gal. Local behavior of the test building as well as overall behavior were obtained and considerations focused on the local behavior were carried out.
