Tension Only Braced Frames

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
AISC Seismic Provisions for OC braced frames, section 14.2 and 14.5, implies that you cannot have a tension only bracing system for buildings higher than three stories. Is that correct? What about if you have the first three stories concrete shear walls and the fourth story braced?
