Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Dynamic Response of Structures


The behaviours of braced steel building frames with friction joints and with eccentric bracing, under seismic forces, are compared. Nonlinear time history dynamic analysis is used. Friction damping is shown to be of particular merit.
